Save $150 through July 12th on the BlackBerry Priv, BlackBerry Passport and the Passport Silver Edition

Save $150 through July 12th on the BlackBerry Priv, BlackBerry Passport and the Passport Silver Edition
Whether you are a fan of Android, or still have a thing for the BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry has some summer deals for you. Running from today through Thursday, July 12th (at 10am ET) you can save money on the Android powered BlackBerry Priv and the BB10 powered BlackBerry Passport. The BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition is also part of the sale.

Right now, you can take $150 off the unlocked BlackBerry Priv, dropping the price to $549. This model will work in the U.S. with AT&T and T-Mobile's network. The Priv is powered by the Android operating system and includes a physical QWERTY keyboard that reveals itself when the vertical slider is opened. We have to say that this is hardly the best price we've seen for the phone. Just yesterday we told you about a seller on eBay unloading the AT&T version of the phone in black. Priced on the popular auction site at $299.99, this version also works with GSM carriers in the states like AT&T and T-Mobile.

Other specs include a 5.4-inch curved edge AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 808 SoC carrying a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. Those who need additional storage can access the 2TB capacity microSD slot that is on the phone. The 18MP rear-facing camera comes with OIS, and the 2MP camera in front shoots selfies and handles video chats. A 3410mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 6.0 is now running the show.

If you're looking for a BB10 powered phone, the BlackBerry Passport is on sale for $355. This represents a $150 price cut. Available in black and white, the wide, square shaped device features a physical QWERTY keyboard that doubles as a trackpad (as does the QWERTY on the Priv). The Passport comes with a 4.5-inch LCD screen carrying a 1440 x 1440 resolution. The Snapdragon 801 chipset drives the unit, which includes a quad-core 2.2GHz CPU and the Adreno 330 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage (25GB available to the user) and there is a 128GB microSD slot available for users who want additional storage. The 13MP camera that adorns the back has OIS, and there is a 2MP front-facing camera for selfies and video chat. The Passport has a 3450mAh battery providing power to the phone. BlackBerry OS 10.3 is pre-installed.

For just $40 more, you can purchase the BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition for $399. Once again, you will save $150 with this deal. The Silver Edition is the revised version of the Passport that comes with rounded corners on the bottom, improvements to the physical QWERTY and a diamond shaped pattern on back that offers users a better grip.

That's for the AT&T version which I have read is not as good as the T-Mobile or Unlocked versions. I'm not exactly sure why, but people point to it being early batches of the product and that the later versions have improved significantly. Not to mention that with that version you're reliant on AT&T for updates which they still have yet to release Android 6.0 even though Blackberry has released it for 2 months now.

Either way it's a mediocre at best phone that shouldn't be purchased with the many other options available.

Can't go wrong with any of these great devices. Any one of them can fulfill a specific need or needs that you may have for a smartphone.

"Any one of them can fulfill a specific need or needs that you may have for a smartphone." HA! You should do standup if you truly believe that about the Passport. I hear that it's great with its mobile deposit on apps that don't have access to Google Play Services.

Not so fast Skippy. An Apple-lover is the last person who should make fun of another smartphone's feature set. Apple is the low man on the totem pole in that regard. No USB-OTG, no wireless charging....I could go on but it's bedtime.

One could say the same about you, sucking up to that other idiot posting here. But that is what you do best, anyway.

So says the guy who is always on his knees for anything blackberry related.

Considering who your CEO idol is, you're the last person to be talking about being on your knees. Lmao!

Low man on the totem pole yet blackberry has tried to compete for years against iphone. Lot of those features are irrelevant.

Posts: 22049; Member since: May 28, 2014

It still doesn't change the fact that both BB10 and BlackBerry Android devices are far more feature rich than the iPhone. And if those features were irrelevant, then why is Apple adopting some of them now?

25. Mxyzptlk unregistered

See I can disagree with Crispin and still get the point he's making while you continue to just go on and on until you get the last word in because you're a megalomaniac.

Dudette, get real. You're just bumburned that I just posted facts you can't argue against. Aloe and a cool cloth will help.

Sure, that's why every other mobile OS has them except Apple. I'm not disputing that Apple makes excellent products, their apps look better than any competing platforms and they did usher in a new way to interact with smartphones. But in the end, iDevices are simply app launchers with no self-contained abilities. They are slightly better than Chromebooks because they have very little offline capability due to their dependence on the internet. No file manager = no productivity. It's games, pictures and music.

The only idiot I converse with is the troll that doesn't even know how to +1 you correctly. You, although an idiot yourself, are also as racist, so I will not waste my time with you. You'll respond of course, desperate for my attention. Now go ahead and prove me right.

If you have something to say to me, say it you coward. Don't hide behind your ridiculous comment.

I addressed you in the comment. I said "idiot". That's you.

26. Mxyzptlk unregistered

No, I think you just saw your reflection in mirror.

Nah, I'm certain that the idiot is you.

Wow they're still charging $500+ for the Passport? If you're on AT&T or T-Mobile, this is passable but there are better deals out there such as the $399 deal for the Moto X Pure Edition or the 6P. Both of those Android devices can be used on ANY carrier and not just the GSM ones. # UniversallyUnlockedReignsSupreme

Why would you even want to be on Verizon or Sprint. Big Red is too expensive and Sprint is worse than dogs**t.

That's why I ditched VZW!! Sprint never had, t mobile is fine for me, AT&T so so kinda pricy too but GSM i like

17. Mxyzptlk unregistered

No one asked you.

16. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Verizon, yes. Sprint's only redeeming qualities are unlimited data and the unlimited $60 plan.
