BlackBerry’s first ever Android phone, the Priv, has had no shortage of sales on its various models in the last few months. This perhaps is not the best sign for BlackBerry’s Android-powered flagship, but for bargain hunters and BlackBerry fans, it is great news. On Wednesday, one more bargain came up for the Priv: the AT&T version of the QWERTY keyboard slider is on sale at DailySteals for just $299.99.
Priv being sold at half the price
For BlackBerry fans, this is the best deal to get their hands on the Priv at well under half of the retail price. According to the site, the deal is available for another two days, and shipping is free. The Priv that’s on sale is the AT&T GSM-LTE model, but according to DailySteals, it has been unlocked for use on other carriers. It should be noted that what DailySteals means by this is “SIM unlocked” and not bootloader unlocked.
The Android-powered phone is not used or refurbished. It is new, and even though in terms of pure hardware specs, the Android phone is a bit behind the curve, it is still an amazing deal at $300. For those who want a high-end phone that packs a physical keyboard, this is probably the only good option.
The Priv offers a 5.4-inch, 2560×1440 screen, 3GB of RAM and an 18MP rear camera. It has a Snapdragon 808 processor and 32GB of storage, plus a MicroSD card slot. The Priv comes with a generous 3440 mAh battery. Thanks to the recent update, the operating system is Android 6.0, and the smartphone has some proprietary Blackberry apps and security features.
