BlackBerry Priv up for pre-orders from Carphone Warehouse; phone ships by November 6th (VIDEO)
The BlackBerry Priv can now be pre-ordered from U.K. retailer Carphone Warehouse. The company was one of the earliest to offer pre-registration for the Android powered slider, and is now taking reservations for the phone. Installment pricing is listed at the equivalent of $75 USD a month, and the phone is expected to ship by November 6th.

According to the listing, the rumored specs that we have been telling you about are true. The Priv features a 5.4-inch dual-curved screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The Snapdragon 808 SoC drives the device, and includes a dual-core 1.8GHz CPU and a quad-core 1.44GHz CPU. The Adreno 418 GPU handles graphics. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage. Those seeking more memory can access the 2TB capacity microSD slot.

An 18MP Schneider-Kreuznach camera (with OIS) adorns the back of the phone, and a 2MP snapper is found in front for selfies and video chats. A 3410mAh provides long battery life, and Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed.

All signs point to a unveiling of the phone shortly. As we've been saying, a November release of the Priv has been rumored for sometime, and it appears that BlackBerry is going to be right on schedule.
