Blackberry Priv Launching on T-Mobile on January 26

HOA Weekly Wrap: HTC Needs “Uh Oh” Protection+Priv Thoughts

After a few months as an AT&T carrier exclusive in the US, the Blackberry Priv will officially be available for purchase through T-Mobile on January 26. If you’re interested in the device you will be able to utilize T-Mobile’s JUMP On Demand! program to get the phone for $0 down. You can also finance the device outright for $0 down and $30 a month for 24 months, a grand total of $720. While $720 may seem expensive, it’s right around the same price for the unlocked version from Blackberry ($699) and the AT&T branded model ($750). In its time on the market the Priv has seen a few software updates, which focussed on the camera and overall software experience.

I’ve owned the AT&T variant of the Priv since its release day and I’ve really enjoyed the phone, so much so that it was one of my Top 5 Android Phones of 2015. The overall software experience is close to stock, and if you want a physical keyboard it is the only option currently available for Android flagships. If you are considering the Priv as your next phone, be sure to check out my full review video review above!

"I am currently a researcher and Adjunct Professor at Arizona State University and Grand Canyon University. I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
