You can now reserve your BlackBerry Priv from New York's B&H Photo
If you live in the U.S., you can pre-order the BlackBerry Priv from BlackBerry's online store. You can now also reserve a unit from B&H Photo. The New York City based camera and electronics retailer is now accepting pre-orders for the Android-powered slider at $699.99, a mere 99 cents more than BlackBerry is charging.
The major difference between pre-ordering from BlackBerry and B&H is the shipping date. BlackBerry expects to start delivering the Priv during the week of November 9th, while B&H Photo plans on delivering the phone starting on November 20th. Those in New York City will be able to pick up their Priv in person at the B&H Superstore, located at 420 9th Avenue.
The BlackBerry Priv is the manufacturer's first Android phone, and features a 5.4-inch screen with dual curved edges and a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 441ppi. A Snapdragon 808 chipset is under the hood, carrying an octa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, with 32GB of native storage. A 2TB capacity microSD slot is available for those requiring additional memory.
The 18MP Schneider-Kreuznach camera on back includes OIS, and there is a 5MP front-facing camera for taking selfies and handling video chats. A 3410mAh battery keeps the generator humming, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed. The Priv comes with security system DTEK, a physical QWERTY keyboard, and a virtual keyboard as well.
