blackberry priv review aa (5 of 32)

Still on the fence about springing for that BlackBerry Priv? They say the early bird gets the worm, but it looks like procrastination has saved the day for you this time. BlackBerry just started a new promo that sees you getting $100 worth of BlackBerry accessories if you buy a Priv between now and February 24, 2016.

So let’s take a look at what all you get when you take the dive for a Priv. For $699.00, you get the basic Priv Bundle. This comes with the titular smartphone, of course, but you’ll also be getting two pretty cool accessories to boot.

First off is the Priv Leather Smart Flip Case in black. This fashionable and protective case is made of genuine Nappa leather, and it fully encases the device front and back with a viewing window for notifications. It opens like a checkbook, and if you’re worried about having that flap awkwardly hanging open while you’re on the phone, fear not: the designers took that into consideration, so you can keep chatting away even with the case closed. The Priv Leather Smart Flip Case would normally cost you $59.99, but you’re getting it for the low, low price of free.

What’s more is that you’ll be getting a Priv Sync Pod. This is a sleek and minimalist dock that displays the smartphone at an upright angle while it’s charging or transferring data. Great for bedside tables or office desks. Normally the Sync Pod would run you $39.99, but if you take advantage of this offer, you won’t be paying a cent.

Are you among those still undecided about making the jump to BlackBerry? Does this promo sweeten the deal enough to coax you over? Let us know in the comments below!

    Too Late .. lol (as in already bought one ..)
    And I would have much prefered that they lob off $100 from the phone cost instead !!

  • JohnOne

    Blackberry please lowered the price of the Priv so all the poor people in the world can stop complain the price is too high it should be $100 off the phone the PRIV!!! is an amazing phone just the high price is hurting this phone

    • Subliminal7X

      Yep. And the one market where they have potential to make a turnaround (India) they’ve priced it at nearly US$1000.00 !! Either Blackberry is incapable of learning from past mistakes, or is looking for an excuse to stop making phones altogether.

      • derek

        When priced in dollars, thats the going price. The US economy is killing the worlds currencies right now.

    • derek

      They will be lowering the price in the next 3-6 months. It’ll be hard to lower the price of the device right when T-mobile just starting selling it. Even Verizon hasnt even released its device yet, they’ll release its version next month.

  • Aman

    Do I need to call them or what please more information thanks

  • dannyR

    Nope. As an Android user, if I wanted a BB as a second phone, I’d get a Q5. For the cost of a Priv you could get 6 Q5’s at BestBuy, get better security, side load Android apps. More compact, much lighter (120 g. vs 190 g.), etc.

    • JohnOne

      No one care the how much the Q5 cost that phone must really sucks really bad I didn’t know that phone exist why waste money on it
