This just might be the lowest on-contract price for the BlackBerry Priv to date
In a deal that expired today, Daily Steals offered the unlocked AT&T branded model of the Priv for $450. That's was a cool $200 (or 31%) discount. And while that might have been the cheapest non-subsidized price for the Priv in the U.S., we might have seen a record low price for the device today out of Canada where Rogers is selling the phone for a subsidized C$299.99 ($236.78 USD) with a signed two-year contract. The carrier's previous on-contract price for the Priv was already low at C $399 ($315.71 USD).
Even though the BlackBerry Priv was released only five months ago, the hardware is beginning to feel dated with the recent launches of next-gen models like the Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, LG G5 and the HTC 10. And with John Chen hinting that two mid-range Android models are coming, power using specs junkies might be done with BlackBerry for the rest of this year. On the other hand, this means that bargain hunters are just beginning to pick through the cut outs looking for values and great deals from carriers and retailers looking to get rid of their inventories of the BlackBerry Priv.
