We are waiting so long for android in BB. Priv has got superb look & performance is amazing. Only thing they have to reduce the price. They have to compete with the current dynamics.
As i am the core addict of BB, i request BB Team to look the market pricing before launching the product.
AnonD-469291, 25 Nov 2015Up until 2 years ago, all smartphones had front-facing cameras with less than 2 mp. Who cares ... moreTwo years ago...you're right. If you compare the benchmarks of bb priv, iPhone 6s and the latest Samsung, bb was built in 2013 or even earlier. If they lower the price by at least 50% they might have a chance. I have my doubts, though...

For those who don't need a physical keyboard, this is simply a nice bonus in the Priv. Who knows? Once you use the keyboard, you may actually like it.
The combination of physical keyboard and hardened Android security is a compelling value proposition for many, esp. those in the enterprise. They may feel it's worth the asking price.
And, btw, I've played with the Priv. Its build quality is premium. Why is it "shitty"?
Azad, 25 Nov 20152 mega pixel front camera!!!!!!! Go home blackberry you are drunk Up until 2 years ago, all smartphones had front-facing cameras with less than 2 mp. Who cares if the front-facing camera has more pixels? I still don't use my front-facing camera.
Sorry Blackberry, but touchscreens and android arent saving you from the ruin. Do you really think people are going to buy such a shitty but expensive phone with a blackberry logo on it?!?!?! By the way, we are in 2015, so forget your classic keyboard....
Great phone, I just have 1 question for all those out there tapping away on their QWERTY keyboards why QUARTY and not QWERTY as it should be ????
I think it should come in two versions: Larger screen and virtual keyboard and shorter screen and QUERTY keyboard.
personally I'd go for the QUERTY version.
This phone is a dream come true. BlackBerry users continue to love BlackBerry due to its querty. We just cant get away from it. But looking at the Android OS, were beginning to miss out on that OS. This one retains the qwerty and an Android OS. What more could you ask for. Too good. Good Job done by BB.
hi! twelve days since I get my Priv, by now the best phone I ever had, Passport the second one, Nexus 5 the third place. I use it for work and some fun social purpose, the best experience having the Android environment with blackberry DNA and amazing hardware. I cant wait for the next OS upgrades to fix minor issues and improve the already great performance and productivity.
Why Blackberry has not make a big campaing on this new product the Priv as other phone company do to let the world know about it
