Verizon's BlackBerry Priv just $259.99 on eBay

39

The Verizon branded version of the BlackBerry Priv is now available on eBay for the low price of just $259.99. While the seller has rung up 17 units, there is still a limited quality available. Even though the listed model (STV100-2) is for customers of the nation's largest carrier, it does offer some GSM capabilities. The handset comes with a vertically sliding QWERTY keyboard. Thanks to the sliding mechanism, the QWERTY keyboard on the Priv is not like the one on other 'Berry models like the BlackBerry Bold 9930, the BlackBerry Passport and the upcoming BlackBerry KEYone. Still, it will get the job done.

In case you've forgotten, the Priv comes with a 5.4-inch AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 (QHD) resolution. Powering the phone is the Snapdragon 808 chipset. This contains a hexa-cxore 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. The rear-facing camera weighs in at 18MP with an aperture of f/2.2 and OIS. A 2MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is the 3410mAh bat, and an update to Android 6.0 has the device running on Marshmallow.
