High price ... But overall good phone... Expected little low price.. Lets wait for price drop...
I love BlackBerry. I used to be a big fan so I am most definitely buying one of these BUT I have a concern with the slider as it might get loose which will cause a wobble.
You haters are weird. As an all touch it's a well specc'd phone with a battery thats almost twice the size as an iphone. It has a great camera, expandable memory and a huge speaker. The sound will be unrivalled. Look how big the speaker is. Realistically with that in mind it should cost the same as other brands of flagships.
Then add the capacitive concealable hardware keyboard.
That's something that nobody else is offering.
It costs money to make.
It's 0.1 of an inch smaller than an iphone 6 plus. To call the keyboard small is laughable.
I've always hated those tiny keyboards, they're harder to use. Guess if you were incredibly desperate for one it's worth it if you don't mind throwing money away.
imagine dear people this crap is more expensive than samsung galaxy edge plus compare their spec..this company is dying and their prices are sky high i don't understand r.i.pieces blueberry
iphone 128gb( only usable version) cost 1.5 times that of priv
Those who are comparing it to IPhone should say iPhone don't have external storage option.
Not cheap, line ball with the iPhone 6S Plus...and that is a big risk. But this is a LOT of phone made by a company that whilst is in a slump has a strong reputation for quality. The hardware specs are solid, but the real question is how secure are the changes to Android? if they have really made it something special, then they may well have the high end corporate market niche they want.
US $ 750 mean Canadian Dollar 983. Got it Haters!!
i like to name it blackberry's down...very high price...you can buy an iphone 6s if you want a highly secured phone.
High price for their ending.
An ailing company and still they price the phone so high.
One of the best smartphone of 2015, but really bad pricing, hope it will drop before year end
Blackberry never understand. Why the hell is the price so high? Very few will be buying it because of that.
Last nail in BlackBerry coffin.
They committed suicide by pricing the Priv that way.
Very sad for the price bracket.
If then can do 200 or even 100 less, things will be much different.
cant believe the price.... i rather get an iPhone or Galaxy S6 edge+ or BB Leap... its so expensive... but *suspicious* BlackPhone got that same price tho
