BlackBerry's debut Android smartphone, the Priv, will cost $750 for the unlocked model in the US and $949 in Canada, according to the official listings of the device on the Canadian company's online store.

Also revealed were the specifications of the handset: Snapdragon 808 SoC, 5.4-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 at 540 DPI, 3GB RAM, 3410mAh battery - claimed to last 22.5 hours, and 2MP front and 18MP rear camera (offering features like 4k video at 30 fps, OIS, and Phase Detect Auto Focus).
c'mon BB , u cant use android, for android nexus is the best. we use BB for its uniqueness, please release TK-VICTORY (concept) this one is bomb shel. designer made a perfect bb design .
I´d be all in for this device if it was sporting BBOS. Since its android, there are better options out there. I´ll stick with my Passport until a TRUE Blackberry comes around.
Personally I love the BB Hardware. It has always been robust. And my priority was always for the security their OS provided. I understand that they are trying to catch up and doing what is possible but I am a little skeptical about the security level...
