Do you remember the last time you saw an Android Smartphone with a physical, slide- out keyboard?  Blackberry is bringing it back with its new Priv smartphone, with productivity and security features. The Priv’s keyboard is great!  The word “Priv” refers to the privacy of users.   The phone lack convenient yet secure biometric authentication features, such as an iris scanner and fingerprint reader.

 It features a Gorilla Glass, 5.4 inch AMOLED display, a snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. Those seeking additional memory can access the 256GB capacity microSD slot.  The BlackBerry Priv boasts solid performance in an exquisite design.  An 18 MP rear camera (with OIS and 4K video recording) and a 2MP front facing camera and 3410 mAH battery.

The BlackBerry Priv is a great effort from the Canadian company.  Thanks to a spring time sale from BlackBerry, the Priv can be purchased for 30% off at $349 in the U.S., In Canada $465 CAD, in U.K. the price is £343 including VAT.  And in the European Union, the device can be purchased for €399 including VAT.
