• Keep Calm and Priv On says CEO John Chen

    John Chen sure does like the Priv. (It'd be nice if knew how to use it before showing it to the media though).

    But in his recent most recent blog post he lets us know what he's thinking about the Priv, what it means for BlackBerry, and that you can pre-order it.

    BlackBerry is the most trusted maker of secure hardware and software in the world today. World leaders including U.S. President Barack Obama, UK Prime Minister David Cameron, German Prime Minister Angela Merkel, leadinggovernment agencies, and the biggest businesses all depend on us.

    I committed that we would release an Android phone only if we could make it, like everything else we produce: secure. We have – and so today is that day.

    I’m proud to announce the world’s first BlackBerry smartphone powered by Android, PRIV, is available for pre-order today.

    PRIV will be the solution for smartphone users who are learning daily of the lack of privacy they have on their current devices. PRIV will be the answer for former BlackBerry users who miss the physical keyboard but want more apps. And we’re responding to current – and prospective – BlackBerry users who need it all: choice, innovation, security, privacy and productivity.

    No comment about current BlackBerry 10 users though. Remember us, John? Still here...
