BlackBerry Priv and Passport prices discounted (this Valentine's Day and beyond)

BlackBerry Priv and Passport prices discounted (this Valentine's Day and beyond)
Planning to buy a BlackBerry Priv, or a BlackBerry Passport off contract? You may want to do it this month, as both smartphones are part of a Valentine's Day deal that sees their prices cut (not by too much, though).

Starting today, and until February 24, an unlocked BlackBerry Priv costs $649.99 (down from $699.99), while an unlocked BlackBerry Passport - in either black, or white - can be yours for $399.99 (down from $499.99). Both new prices seem to available only if you're purchasing the handsets from BlackBerry's official online shop - check out the source link at the end of this article.

The new Priv price includes BlackBerry's previous offer, thus you can actually get not just the Priv, but also a leather Smart Flip Case, and a Sync Pod (for transferring data between the smartphone and your computer) for $649.99.

The BlackBerry Priv and BlackBerry Passport are two very different smartphones, not just when it comes to design (the Priv is a slider, while the Passport is an unusually wide slate), but also when it comes to OSes: the Passport runs BlackBerry OS 10, while the Priv runs Android Lollipop (upgradeable to Android 6.0 Marshmallow).
