While we all caught up covering and reading everything Nexus and Chromecast related, Blackberry took to their official blog to release three images of their upcoming slider-the Blackberry Priv. While there is still plenty of speculation about how we’re supposed to pronounce this phone’s name, we know pretty much everything about its internal hardware. The device was originally codenamed Venice and has leaked all over the internet in the past 3 months.
The new photos don’t show much that we don’t know, but it does show an interesting side profile of the device. The most interesting thing to note from the side view is the power and volume button configuration. It appears the power button will be in between the two volume buttons, which seems like it will be annoying, at least to me. I can imagine trying to push the power button only to press one of the volume keys, especially considering the small size of the power button.
Blackberry mentions that we will know more soon, including pricing and availability. I still think device looks intriguing, should be interesting to see how Blackberry prices this one, and how they pronounce the name…
