Here is some good news for BlackBerry fans! The BlackBerry Priv, which was launched at $700, is now available for just $450 with a massive price cut. However, the deal is applicable on unlocked version of BlackBerry Priv bought from AT&T. The good news is that the phone will also work over T-Mobile network.
Owing to a staggering price tag of the BlackBerry Priv, the company CEO John Chen thought this might turn away customers. In an attempt to make it affordable to customers, the price of the device was slashed by $50 permanently. But this move failed to drive adequate demand perpetually.
Now, with the recent drastic price cut, Priv is expected to rope in large section of the crowd who are Blackberry fans and love Android. Chen further revealed that there will be two other Android-powered BlackBerry smartphones later this year, priced between $300 and $400.
Do not expect these two devices to perform like Priv, but one of them will feature a physical QWERTY keyboard, which is a good news indeed. Bear in mind that the Priv is not available via Sprint and Verizon, reports Phone Arena.
The company’s official Canadian website shows the original price of the Priv at $650, while it is now available at $450. This means you get to save $200, which is good. GSM Arena points it out that the deal is limited for a time period and it will end in next four days. So hurry!
Since it is an unlocked version, you can use the phone with other GSM carriers as well. Daily Steals is also selling the device for $449.99. Also, these are new units and not revamped smartphones. Before you go for the deal, it should be noted that shipping charges are inclusive of taxes and is not free, according to reports by Android Police.
