Android-powered BlackBerry Priv ships on 6 November for £559 – pre-order now

UPDATE: Now you can place your order for BlackBerry's first Android phone

UPDATE (23/10/15): Following yesterday’s prematurely-posted U.S. pre-order page (see original story below), BlackBerry has officially rolled out pre-orders for its upcoming Priv phone in multiple countries, including the UK.

The Android slider phone will sell for £559 in the UK, or US$699 in the States; that’s US$50 less than the pulled page suggested. Also, it will ship in both countries starting on 6 November, so a release is just a couple weeks away. If you’re eager to see how BlackBerry transitions over to Android, now is the time to plunk down your money.

 

ORIGINAL STORY (22/10/15): The Priv might be BlackBerry’s boldest move to date, and it has less to do with the smartphone itself than what’s powering it: Android. And now we know when we might actually see this game-changer.
