Save 30% on the BlackBerry Priv directly from BlackBerry
BlackBerry is expected to release the KEYone next month. With a gorgeous looking QWERTY keyboard attached to the device, and the most up to date specs on a 'Berry, the new phone promises to be everything that a BlackBerry fan could wish for. Well, except for the pricing that is. If you're looking for a BlackBerry that is powered by Android and offers a physical QWERTY and a good price, consider the BlackBerry Priv.

The Priv, featuring a vertical slider that exposes the physical QWERTY, no longer sports specs that are remotely up to date. In edition, the real estate given the keys for the physical keyboard is not what you would call generous. But thanks to a Spring time sale from BlackBerry, the Priv can be purchased for 30% off at $349 in the U.S. In Canada, the sale price is $465 CAD. In the U.K., the price is  £343.00 including VAT. And in the European Union, the device can be purchased for €399.00 including VAT.

To refresh your memory, the Priv features a Gorilla Glass 4 protected 5.4-inch AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 (QHD) resolution. The Snapdragon 808 SoC is under the hood with a hexa-core CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. Those seeking additional memory can access the 256GB capacity microSD slot. The 18MP rear camera comes with an f/2.2 aperture, OIS and Schneider-Kreuznach optics. For selfie snappers, the front-facing camera weighs in at 2MP. An ample 3410mAh battery keeps the phone running, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed. Keep in mind that while this is an unlocked model, the Priv is a GSM handset and will not work with the Verizon, Sprint and U.S. Cellular networks among the top five major carriers in the states.

BlackBerry is also offering accessories for as much as 40% off. And if you're not a traditional BlackBerry fan, the all-touch BlackBerry DTEK50 and BlackBerry DTEK60 are available from the website along with the BlackBerry Passport. If interested, simply click on the appropriate sourcelink.
