Blackberry’s future is a little bit in limbo but the device that could turn around their fortunes is nearly here. That device, of course, is the Blackberry Priv and pre-registration for the device has now opened.
Now before you get too excited, this is a pre-registration, no a pre-order. Signing up simply allows Blackberry to contact you once the device is available for purchase, which we expect to happen sometime in November.
On the plus side, the opening of pre-registration did confirm some specs for the upcoming device. We now know for sure that the device will sport a 5.4″ dual curved display and Schneider-Kreuznach® certified camera. A very healthy 3410 mAh battery should keep things running all day long and Blackberry is claiming extraordinary audio quality for the Priv.
Again, the Priv could be Blackberry’s last hope and I’m really hoping that they’re able to succeed with this Android powered slider.
