• BlackBerry Priv Pre-Orders Live On ShopBlackBerry, Shipping November 6th

    It's finally Friday! After Wednesday's mishap, the BlackBerry Priv Pre-Order page is now live, with an updated cost of $699 USD unlocked for Americans, $899 CAD for Canadians and Ł559.00 for Brits with an expected ship date of November 6th.

    Shortly after the pages went live, they were mysteriously removed by BlackBerry. We've reached out to our contacts, and they've advise us that the pre-order page should properly go live on October 23rd (Friday).

    The unlocked price still seems a bit elevated for Canadians, as Rogers stated that they'd carry the Priv for $799 CAD unlocked.
