    Officially launched in the U.S and the U.K. Friday, industry websites have been beaming out favorable reviews for the new Blackberry Priv. Thenextweb.com called it probably one of the best Android phones it has ever used and the U.K.'s Daily Mirror newspaper described it as "the comeback that gadget fans have been waiting for." Technology website AndroidCentral stated that "BlackBerry can make one hell of an Android phone."


    BlackBerry ships its Android phone?is it a comeback?
    Then how can CNET, Engadget et all have it wrong? Aren't they the big boys? :P Good to see more unbiased reviews outside of Apple paid USA.

    I would love to see BlackBerry partnering with more companies to help them plug security holes, their knowledge is valuable they need to use it...

    Chen hinted that worst case handsets go under they still have the BB experience suite to sell. So i guess selling the experience suite may depend on phone success. Or, they sell it anyways and the Priv is there for the PKB market.

    Think they will sell it anyway...

    PRIV might be a test bed for these Android Apps, once stable they can offer them to who ever they plan to offer them to.

    Hasn't been clear if it would be suites that could be added to a BES subscription or if the would breakout individual apps for sale to consumers.

    Sadly some of the PRIV reviewers like that the BlackBerry apps could be removed... and that you ended up with a pretty stock Android installation.

    Good lord, I knew I should have saved up to purchase the PRIV. Do I bite and purchase a 24 month contract right away? It's tempting, it really is.

    I'm not too concerned about the Experience Suite tbh. I think allowing users to remove certain apps from the PRIV was the correct move in terms of trying to attract Android users. I think the keyboard, battery, baseline security, and maybe camera/screen are the keys here in terms of differentiation. For some the apps will be a nice surprise or welcome addition, but remember for others who are Android purists and just want that keyboard, why not offer the option?

    Quite pleased with BBRY today - seems like a solid market response to the device (almost 10 million volume right now). The reviews seem as good as we can expect for a BlackBerry device at this point in time (that gizmodo mode is just lol - not much else to say there). I guess ShopBlackBerry is already out of stock, I hope that they can get some sense of what demand is here and increase production as needed esp if any marketing ramps in the coming weeks as more carriers may get on board as well. Good start here, but very early in the game still.

    Just curious, is the phone set up as a demo unit (ie. you have preset things you can check out) or is it a fully functional unit on wifi? Thanks

    So Mr. Chen says "range of products after this", what's he got up his sleeve?

    It's fully functional with the retail preview screen running until you wake the device. 10 minutes of playing with the Priv and so far WOW! This phone is crazy fast and the camera and display will blow you away! I know it's early but my initial feel is that the pkb does not touch the Classic. Hopefully I get used to it, but overall a VERY impressive phone.

    If reviewers like removing BlackBerry "bloatware", that doesn't bode well for Chen being able to turn around and sell it. HUB is one of the best featues on BB10, but Russell who did the AC review said
    I think it's a tough sell for folks who already have a workflow they tolerate. BlackBerry Hub has a lot of positive features to it if you want everything in one place organized the way BlackBerry thinks is best. I really dig it as a social aggregate, but as a Google Inbox user I'm probably never going to use Hub for email. The way Google organizes email as a ToDo list works for me in ways nothing else has ever worked.
    Too be honest though I fully expect the BlackBerry Experience suites to be solely a enterprise solution to future improve the separation of Personal and Work spaces.

    I'm sooo tempted to get a PRIV, but gosh, I certainly do not need a 3rd cell phone lol. I just purchased the Classic and PP SE several months ago lol! But boy do I ever want a slider! That's almost like the 'No Compromises' phone IMO...great keyboard and 16:9 screen to run all common apps and access to Google Play store! I still wish BB10 had all these benefits

    Hey ZD, out of curiosity, which phone do you use as your daily driver? Classic or Passport? The only reason I ask is because I find myself feeling nostalgic typing away my last few messages on my Classic as I get ready to retire it for the Priv. I also have the Passport but I hardly touch it because the Classic is my sweet spot. The keyboard is perfect and the toolbelt completes it. I'm going to have a very hard time leaving this device, not to mention BB10.... Jeez, if they make me wait any longer, I might just leave without the Priv!.....
