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