Rogers starts accepting BlackBerry Priv pre-orders
Canadian carrier Rogers is now accepting pre-orders for the BlackBerry Priv. All Rogers customers need to layout at the moment is $40 to reserve one of the Android powered sliders. Unfortunately, we don't have an idea what the final price of the Priv is going to be. Carphone Warehouse's pre-order page for the phone, lists a SIM free version of the phone priced near $900.

The BlackBerry Priv will sport a 5.4-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a 544ppi pixel density. The Snapdragon 808 chipset is powering the handset, with a hexa-core CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage. A 2TB capacity microSD slot is aboard for those requiring additional memory.

An 18MP Schneider-Kreuznach camera (with OIS) is on back, and there is a 2MP front-facing snapper ready to shoot selfies and handle video chats. Users should be able to squeeze plenty of battery life out of the 3410mAh juicer, and Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed.

Yesterday, BlackBerry put up a blog post explaining how it is able to keep Android secure, a task that BlackBerry's CEO said was a must before he would sell a phone powered by Google's open source OS.
