Carphone Warehouse shows you what comes in the box with the BlackBerry Priv
U.K. retailer Carphone Warehouse was one of the first to put the BlackBerry Priv up for pre-orders. Now, the company has been able to obtain a box with the Android powered slider inside. Besides the phone, there is the usual Quick Start Guide for those who are too impatient to go through the entire user's manual for the device.

Also in the box is the tool required to open the SIM tray, a set of headphones for the device, and a USB plug and cord for charging the 3410mAh battery inside the handset. When the phone is turned on and boots up, it does look strange to see the BlackBerry name with the Android logo right underneath it.

Both the virtual and physical QWERTY keyboards are displayed on the video. The latter is touch-enabled like the QWERTY on the BlackBerry Passport, which means that Priv users can employ it as a trackpad.

The BlackBerry Priv ships on November 6th. In the U.S., it can be ordered directly from BlackBerry for $699.



Thanks for the tip!

Blackberry's going to make lots of money with this. Though they should also make one minus the keypad.

Priv could be the last phone from BlackBerry if it doesn't turn the hanset division into a profitable business

The Priv alone isn't what's going to make the handset division profitable. But it will play a big part in doing so.

When she shows the charger she behaves like she is doing a porn video.

Wow! I guess there aren't many good-looking women where you live.

Not a good picture of her in that thumbnail.

True, she looks like a little kid who got the wrong flavored ice-cream cone.

You kidding me? She looks like she could suck the chrome off a trailer hitch. That's NEVER a bad thing.

They wont be any events. Blackberry already released this phone and showed multiple videos and commercials. The phone will start shipping November 6th.

I just feel like $699 is a bit much. I would rather spend that on a nexus 6P.

Wait till you see the European price...

Out of all the video of her holding the device, iphonearena had to pick one of her looking like she's crying...

Not my style of phone because I personally would not use the physical keyboard. But I hope they do make a comeback. I would love another stock android phone option. Motorola is starting to slip.

Choosing that thumbnail is kind of dickish behavior, PhoneArena...

Man, you guys are hard to please...ok, check out the new thumbnail. Hope you're satisfied (and know how to read between the lines). Regards, Alan F.

haha, I see you've quietly changed it back to the crying image...

Not at all. Perhaps you're looking at the cache image. Alan F.

Right, guess I saw the new one on my phone but the cached one still remained on my Surface Pro...just cleared the cache and now I'm seeing the new image. Thanks.

Yeah... Not about being hard to please. It was a very odd picture to choose. She looked like, "And here's this piece of ****."

Either this or a LG V10, leaning toward the V10 because of the dual front facing cameras as opposed to blackberry's 2mp front facing camera.
