BlackBerry's May Madness promotion includes discounts on the Priv and the Passport
Those looking to purchase a BlackBerry Passport or a BlackBerry Priv directly from the manufacturer might want to take advantage of the company's new May Madness promotion.

For a limited time, the iconic smartphone maker is offering the standard BlackBerry Passport (in either Black or White) at $375. The Passport Silver Edition will set you back $410.

Chances are that most BlackBerry fans are already well accustomed to the uniquely-shaped Passport. However, just in case you're looking for a quick refresher, the last BB OS 10 handset manufactured by BlackBerry comes with physical specs such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset paired with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a 13MP primary camera with OIS, and a 2MP secondary shooter on the front. The main highlights of the phone are its 4.5-inch 1440 x 1440 square display and the physical keyboard below it. 


If you've already come to the conclusion that you want a BlackBerry Passport, then we suppose that this is a decent deal. On the other hand, most users are probably better off getting an iPhone or an Android smartphone.

Speaking of Android smartphones, BlackBerry's May Madness campaign also includes a decent deal on the company's first Android device, the Priv. The handset's price remains a rather steep $649, but the company is throwing in a black flip case and a sync pod with each purchase. 

The two accessories have a total value of $99, which makes this is a rather interesting deal. On the other hand, you can still hurry and get the BlackBerry Priv at just $380 from eBay, which is a much better deal overall.
