Dumbass comments here, if you don't know and use the priv just stfu.
Blackberry got the premium look. John Chen should improve for Priv 2 instead. Such a privillege phone and buried by the dust. Hope a new Priv 2 will emerge as a champion.
Smart move, if ugly and low speced Samsungs folder mobiles can sell why can't priv be sold ??
The decision makes no business sense - the phone is dated. BB should sell the phone manufacturing unit and concentrate on EMM and systems security.
Alfredo1228, 08 Sep 2016Fantastic! Releasing an obsolete phone in an event after a year of its launch. WOW They for ... moreThe phone is far from obsolete it's a 8 core phone with a 1080 if not higher screen it has the same screen as like a note 7 expandable storage full physical keyboard a3,500 mAh battery front firing speaker 18 mega pixel rear camera 2 mega pixel front facing seems pretty well speed before u knock it try it it'll impress
The priv is one if not the best smart phones I ever had I will not ever switch out from the priv after Samsung did its recall o. The note 7 I decided to give the priv a chance man I'm glad I did I love the physical keyboard on the thing battery is great and bb hub is awesome
Jimbob, 08 Sep 2016BlackBerry take forever to do anything..Really ...They are the 1st to push security updates every month for Android.Also the 1st the eliminate the quadrooter issue on Android.
Are they serious?! There is now way they're gonna get market share with that phone.
Is it going to be a Priv with updated and relevant specs for 2016/17 cause if not its deaaaaaaad in the waterrrrr (sang to smoke on the water tune).
i waisted my hard money on bb z10 mobile. my friends warned me but i got foolish and go with bb z10 the cheaters
Dtek50 would have been an appropriate choice for launch.
Priv is good but not popular. First step is to use a popular means to re-enter. Dtek50 too has still to get strong hold in market.
Blackberry had niche market and in recent times it has become niche niche device.
I personally have Blackberry q5 for all my personal correspondence.
But I do not agree to pricing strategy of BlackBerry.
S. K. Needs Quality cells like BB in that market.
For them to Realize it's not always price and it's High budget marketing to promote there cells. Hehe
Releasing an obsolete phone in an event after a year of its launch. WOW
They for sure will sell it for $999.
Is there anybody still wondering why BlackBerry kept failing over and over and over again?
Is this a joke?
Priv is already way outdated
Theres no phone manufacturers can survive in korea
Other than apple since it's pretty much monopolized by LG and Samsung
Well good luck
Who buys these crappy phones? The Canadians should focus on making a worthy rival to Airbus (Bombardier) and stop beating a dead horse with crap berries!
