BlackBerry Priv Prices and Specs revealed by ShopBlackBerry

We already know that the BlackBerry Priv will cost £579.99 unlocked in the UK, at least from Carphone Warehouse.

In the early hours of this morning, BlackBerry revealed the US and Canadian prices for the BlackBerry Priv when they put the device up for pre-order from ShopBlackBerry. Pre-orders were set to go live tomorrow, Friday October 23.

For those in the U.S the BlackBerry Priv will cost $750 unlocked, while in Canada it’ll cost you a cool $949.  Both countries had a shipping date of November 16.

Considering the fact that the Priv still hasn’t been officially announced, with no launch event announced either, it may explain why BlackBerry quickly pulled the pages online.

Interestingly, as well as publishing the pricing, BlackBerry published the full specs of the device.
