Deal: BlackBerry Priv priced at just $299.99 on eBay

Deal: BlackBerry Priv priced at just $299.99 on eBay
Last week, we told you about a Father's Day deal that could net you $100 off the unlocked version of the BlackBerry Priv. If you're tempted to purchase BlackBerry's first Android smartphone but weren't able to take advantage of this discount, worry not, as today we've spotted the BlackBerry Priv going for just $299.99 on eBay including free shipping in the US.

The BlackBerry Priv is far from the commercial success that the manufacturer was aiming for. At $299.99, however, BlackBerry's first Android smartphone offers a lot of value and is a great choice for those looking for a privacy-minded phone.

Note that this deal is for the black AT&T version, although the seller also provides an unlock code. The phone will work with GSM carriers such as AT&T and T-Mobile, but it is not compatible with Verizon or Sprint.

The raw hardware specs include a 5.4-inch display with a curved screen and a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels, a Qualcomm Samsung 808 chipset with a hexa-core CPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of integrated storage space, a microSD card slot just in case you need more space for your documents, as well as a 3,410mAh battery. In the imaging department, the Blackberry Priv comes with an 18MP primary camera and a 2MP secondary shooter on the front. 

We cannot mention the Priv without highlighting its superb slide-out physical keyboard, one that productivity-minded smartphone users are likely to fall in love with. 

On the software side, the Priv launched with Android 5.1 Lollipop but has been recently updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. For much more details on Blackberry's current flagship, check the full Blackberry Priv review.

$300 is what it should have been from the start. Ok price for AT&T subscribers. It's not universally unlocked, so I won't say it's a good deal compared to the Nexus 6P deals out there.

This is what HTC, Blackberry, & the other OEMs don't understand. You can't compete with the likes of Samsung & Apple in this market. They are so entrenched, outside some revolutionary innovation it is not going to happen. They have to price their phones low while creating a great product to lure customers in and win back brand loyalty.

A very good point. Apple and Samsung are in the spots they're in for a reason. Blackberry can't do what they do and expect to win.

How about Apple iPhone? Don't you think they should price their phone at $300 too? Talk about apple fan double standards.

The only loser here (obviously), is you, because you actually want to spend your time on a tech site arguing instead of enjoying the weekend. I'm done thrashing you verbally here. I've won yet again, and you know it. You'll just be referred to this comment for any responses from you. And don't mimic me with your responses, even though I know you will.
