Save 23% or $150 on the BlackBerry Priv for the remainder of the month; phone now priced at $499 USD


So BlackBerry has released the DTEK50, its second Android powered phone. While the 'Berry guys might have had the time to really mesh together BlackBerry and Android on the new phone, you might want Android and that physical QWERTY experience that has been a part of BlackBerry for so long. That means that the BlackBerry Priv should be on your shopping list. And from now through the end of this month, BlackBerry has a deal on the handset.

For the remainder of August, the unlocked Priv can be yours for $499 USD. North of the border, the price is $650 CAD. The phone is a GSM model which means it will work with AT&T and T-Mobile in the states. The sale takes $150 or 23% off the $649 USD that the phone cost yesterday.

In case it has slipped your mind, the BlackBerry Priv features a 5.4-inch AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Driving the unit is the Snapdragon 808 chipset carrying a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of expandable native storage. A 2TB capacity microSD slot is available for those seeking additional memory.

An 18MP camera graces the back of the unit and offers OIS capabilities. Shoot selfies and handle video chats with the 2MP front-facing camera, and the whole shebang is powered by a 3410mAh battery. The Priv now runs on Android 6.0, and the phone slides open to reveal that aforementioned physical QWERTY keyboard.
