BlackBerry Priv available online from Verizon today, in stores March 11th
Verizon is putting a $720 price tag on the BlackBerry Priv for those looking to pay the full retail price of the device. Verizon customers also have the option of paying $30 a month over 24 months using the Verizon installment plan. Big Red has some other goodies that they are offering, such as 24GB of free data for life to those who upgrade or activate a new phone with device payment on the XL plan or larger. Those switching from another carrier can receive up to $650 per line to pay off Early Termination Fees or installment plan balances.
Believe it or not, there was once a time when BlackBerry accounted for 95% of the smartphones sold by Verizon. Those days are obviously long gone. But if you are a BlackBerry fan who lived through the BlackBerry Storm, BlackBerry Bold 9930, and the BlackBerry Z10 to name a few, you owe it to yourself to check out this marriage between Android and BlackBerry.
