T-Mobile reveals pricing on the BlackBerry Priv one week before release
With AT&T losing its exclusivity on the BlackBerry Priv this week, T-Mobile will add the first Android powered BlackBerry to its equipment lineup on January 26th. In advance of the release, the carrier has released its pricing of the device. For those using JUMP! On Demand, the slider will cost $0 down and $34 a month. That is actually an 18 month lease. After that time period expires, you can return it for a new phone, or pay off the balance to keep it. You are allowed to upgrade up to three times in one-year with the plan.

If you'd rather purchase the device instead of leasing it, T-Mobile will sell the Priv to qualified customers for $0 down and 24 payments of $30. The full retail price of the Priv at T-Mobile is $719.99.

To refresh your memory, the BlackBerry Priv features a 5.4-inch AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 541ppi. The Snapdragon 808 chipset is under the hood, carrying a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage. For those requiring additional storage space, a 2TB capacity microSD slot is available.

The 18MP rear-facing camera offers OIS, and the 2MP front-facing camera takes selfies and handles video chats. A 3410mAh battery is on board, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed.

After T-Mobile starts selling the Priv, the phone will eventually show up at Verizon and Sprint.
