Their (bb) brain just started to working, if they done this 4-5 years before everythings could be different, just same as nokia.
mmj321, 12 Dec 2015The alternative universe is called 'sarcasm' No really it's such a plausible scenario, if Nokia switched when they were on top maybe they would be the number one Android smartphone maker instead of Samsung and actually have figured out a way to make crazy profit from their premium secure phones, they could've taken a big chunk of Apple's massive smartphone profit taking. Same thing with BB except to a lesser extent.
AnDas, 12 Dec 2015LOL! Probably in an alternative universe. The alternative universe is called 'sarcasm'
I would consider this phone but the whole going back to Android I don't care to do not yet not right now at least, really enjoying my BlackBerry Z30.
mmj321, 11 Dec 2015Had nokia switched to android nokia would've bought microsoft ;pLOL! Probably in an alternative universe.
stvL, 11 Dec 2015let's hope they don't regret and more so hope BB don't decide to drop support for it (soon)They can't it's their only Android phone lol unless they go bankrupt which as of now it doesn't seem that way lol
Venusi, 11 Dec 2015They sold out the only 5 units they had. Sold out means nothing in selling number standards. ... moreWalmart has more brick & mortar stores than all of those companies. And it's possible a lot of them got it through some kind of phone or payment plan along with paying the full retail price.
Guess going with Android is paying off, they should've switched a long time ago, the Priv is a great phone that needs some improvements here and there which are mostly software fixable. Can't wait to see the Priv 2!
It is worth pointing out that there is a lot of goodwill towards BlackBerry and many consider Blackberry 10 to be a seriously efficient operating system. By moving into Android whilst retaining their security credentials BlackBerry should strengthen its position. It is important that the company considers launching devices in other segments of the market whilst also retaining BlackBerry 10 OS. By offering customers a choice the market can only benefit. Also, it is worth noting that many people actually appreciate the tactile feedback from a physical keyboard and BlackBerry are now the only major player to offer this option.

dogwood, 11 Dec 2015Price is not high at all when compared to other phones with a half eaten apple logo on it.It is high and btw Samsuck S6 costs same as iPhone in my country :P
it's not surprising considering many people still love hardware keypad plus android versatility topped with blackberry services. That's how you define premium device.
Leo, 11 Dec 2015Here in Canada iPhone 6s 16gb costs $829!!! That's for a 2011 screen and 2013 camera lol. So true. These days, iPhones are just so old fashioned, under equipped and lack of personality. It's a totally 2nd tier phone.
luffy1999, 11 Dec 2015Good to know that device is selling. Waiting for more blackberry products next year...True,, had the Classic this year great device just little underpowered running side loaded Android apps.

Best smartphone of 2015.
The price is in line with other devices with similar hardware and specs, but with the Priv, you also get a PKB slider option, Android security and a massive battery with a top end camera.
You also get Blackberry's software and business apps including the BB10 HUB etc.
