John Chen`s favorite movie is Back to the Future. Where everyone s... moreNuff said,what a joke!?
I've used android and IOS and had to constantly backspace to correct touchtyping and errors! What a waste of time! Qwerty keyboards are the way to go and it's even capacitive!
radheyshyam, 20 Oct 2015plz anybody can tell me the difference between blackberry android and other brand android smartfoneThere is a hardened and encrypted kernal in the os which is os and hardware based for ther security and has a few of bb's apk's built in!
why they always bring the black one. first i know they got a white version.
All of the specs are beast.....one of the best camera....huge battery....but a 2mp camera is a shame for smartphones of 2015...and even the 18mp camera would be not good as i should be...so a little disaapointed
I think BB has needed a new line to grow up in the World
I like Android , IOS & OS
I say To BB Welcome To android World ....
The phone will make absolute Blast!!!! Specs, Interference, Battery Life and Structure Is Damn Awsme..!!! Gud Going Blackberry!! :)
I was lover of BB but due to OS which do not have more easy access of applications. Then I decided to use latest samsung mobiles, But now I am glad to know that BB is launching android Blackberry Priv. will shift again from Samsung to Blackberry.
Great strategy for Bb, finally they are using the No.1 smart phone operating system, with their usual excellent physical keyboard. well done BB keep it up.
I cant wait to see this phone in UAE or Dubai.
Even if you don't care about security, that curved AMOLED screen, HUGE battery, expandable memory, and of course, that keyboard! It even has wireless charging for crying out loud! Still think it's not worth the $699 price tag?
Then why bother looking at it.. I Bet you like it, subconsciously.
John, 23 Oct 2015I think its gonna fail. Me too. Berry x android... What the hell were they thinking ?! This is a fail preview...
[deleted post]Your keyboard is not very compatible by looks of it
I wish the Priv was a bit more affordable, but it isn't a regular Android phone. The ultra secure BlackPhone 2 running Android by Silent Circle sells for $799... a $100 more than the Priv. Both Android phones target customers who require very secure communications (enterprise, governments, law enforcement, the military, lawyers, journalists, etc) but the BlackBerry Priv is more affordable than the BlackPhone 2... it also has better specs and looks much much better than the Blackphone2.
chris, 23 Oct 2015and its quite heavy 192 grms is like a brickThe iPhone 6SPlus weighs 192 grams, exactly like the Priv... and that didn't stop people from buying it.
Really a cool device ... but why android o.O where's bb os ?? is it discontinued?
