BlackBerry Priv will be sold exclusively by Carphone Warehouse in the UK


The BlackBerry Priv has been the subject of much talk as it is the first true Android from BlackBerry and after all the speculation and rumour RIM announced the details to us a while back. The latest snippet of news about this BlackBerry Android is that BlackBerry Priv will be sold exclusively by Carphone Warehouse in the UK.

The UK retailer will be the first ones to offer users the BlackBerry Priv with pre-orders started a week ago and it is now showing as “in stock” on the mobile retailers website.


The CPW deals are starting from just £49 up front so if you have been waiting to get your hands on the latest BlackBerry then head on over to the Carphone Warehouse BlackBerry Priv deals page. Carphone has the exclusivity rights to the BlackBerry Priv until the end of the year so if you or anyone you know wants one, CPW is the place to go as they have it in stock either online or in store.


BlackBerry Priv Features

The main talking point of the Priv has been the move away from the BB OS to the ever more popular Android system. The BlackBerry Priv has a slide down keypad for all those fans of the previous BlackBerry handsets with a keyboard and a full 5.4-inch touchscreen display too.


The Priv screen gently curves around each side of the phone and these sides display handy notifications and the battery status.


The rear camera on the Priv is impressive at 18-megapixels and includes 4K video recording and a lens that lets in more light for professional photo results. The front facing camera is only a 2-megapixel lens so selfie fans may not appreciate the lack of a better camera here.


The hexacore processor uses intelligent technology to manage tasks with two cores for demanding apps and the remaining four cores to handle the bulk of everyday less intensive tasks.


The phone includes BlackBerry DTEK which is a privacy app that provides a warning system when running apps to keep your info secure and restrict access of certain apps to some info on your phone.

The slide out keypad and large touchscreen give you the best of both worlds on the BlackBerry Priv and Android fans can now enjoy the best bits of BlackBerry like the BBM service and BlackBerry Hub.
