Carrier-locked BlackBerry Priv gets price cut at AT&T

Carrier-locked BlackBerry Priv gets price cut at AT&T
AT&T has reduced the off-contract price of the BlackBerry Priv by $50. That takes the first Android powered BlackBerry down to $630 at the nation's second largest carrier.  Or, you can pay monthly using a 0% installment plan. A 30 month EIP will run you as little as $21.34 a month, which works out to $640.20 by the time the phone is all paid for.

You can actually save more by purchasing the unlocked AT&T version of the phone for $450 from Daily Steals. As we previously informed you, that price is only available through tomorrow.

BlackBerry CEO John Chen recently admitted that he priced the Priv too high at $700. The executive said that a pair of new Android flavored Berry's will be out later this year, priced in the $300 to $400 range. One model will feature a physical QWERTY, and the other will be an all-touch device. The former could turn out to be the handset with a code name of Vienna, which has graced our site before.

If you are an AT&T customer jonesing for some of that vertical slider goodness, you now have two choices. Remember though, the more financially appealing deal expires tomorrow.
