Verizon Blackberry Priv is now on sale through carrier’s online store, coming to local dealers on March 11th
Verizon has just announced the Blackberry Priv to join their list of offering. The Big Red is the third carrier in the US to offer the very first Blackberry smartphone to work on Android OS.

The phone went official in October 2015 and earlier today it became available online and through carrier’s local stores.

We have been hearing rumors claiming that Canadian manufacturer BlackBerry is getting ready to launch its first smartphone running an operating system different than BlackBerry for quite some time. At the beginning it might have been hard to believe but last month BlackBerry CEO John Chen officially confirmed that a device called BlackBerry Priv will ship with Android on board. However, he didn’t reveal any specifics regarding the phone’s specs or launch date. It turns out that we didn’t have to wait long for more information to emerge. The BlackBerry Priv Android smartphone finally has been fully revealed, and it’s ‘almost’ ready for pre-order in the US and Canada.
A certain BlackBerry-branded phone called Venice started showing up in rumors a few months ago and immediately caused a commotion. And for a very good reason, because the device is like no other, at least when it comes to phones made by BlackBerry. Initial rumors were scarce on the details but today we finally got to learn more, for instance that the first Android BlackBerry phone will be called Priv and will be coming to stores later this year, more likely right for the time of holiday shopping season.
If you follow the news from smart-tech world, you probably know that BlackBerry hit a rough patch a while back and has been struggling to regain its position on the market ever since. The Canadian manufacturer launched a few smartphones in the last couple of years, some of them more successful than others, however, it appears that the business is not doing so well. Could a new solution be of any help? Blackberry seems to think so – according to the latest rumors, this fall the company may launch a phone that runs Android OS.
