    Wow, a lot of people seem to be annoyed about the price but compare it with the other flagships. It's a lot less than the iPhone 6 or the S6. And this now runs Android, so now lack of apps. It's got a PKB, thin, killer specs, I honestly think the pricing is good, there is literally no way a phone with those specs could come out at 500...

    Not I. Currently have a passport that I bought from shopbb with that early coupon code.

    The Priv is priced fairly high and I don't need it. Also not a fan of any slider.

    there are some good apps with Google play, I'm hoping after the Privi release the next bb10 update will include google play, Although I have it now, there are some minor issues and app differences that can occur. So here's hoping for the Google play to show up soon.

    There is nothing wrong with my note 4 but I'm a phone junky so.. Priv it is,
    How do you like the note 4? I am considering that as my next device to replace my Z10. I will hold out a few months maybe. Or maybe the note 5 will drop in price faster than the PRIV. Lol. Either way they PRIV is too much for me right now.

    I will not be. Love my Passport, and not a fan of Android or sliding keyboards. I want my keyboard to be there at all times.

    BlackBerry Passport / OS 10.3.2.2639 / SQW100-3 / BBM 2C05E109

    Nexus 6P. Similar specs. $500. No keyboard of course, but no waiting for updates either.

    The only way I will be upgrading to the Priv is only if they release it with OS10 but until then, the Passport will be my next BlackBerry.

    bb has to realize, that they need to find new market not churn existing owner, I for one have a z30 (great phone) and a passport, great phone and they should last me 5 years, all they need are the google apps and wow, I will be buying a new BBpHONE, when the time is right, I would like to see a BBgun by then.

    I'm not going to upgrade yet. My Z30 is going strong and I still have my Passport that I've only used for a few months. If I had the money right now I'd get the Priv more out of curiosity than anything else. But for now I'll wait. Who knows. Maybe I'll be ready for a new phone when the Priv 2 comes out.

    I'd also like a hands on feel of the phone. The Z30 is already big enough for me, and from what I've seen the Priv is a tad bit bigger. I don't know if I'll be comfortable with the Priv. But only one way to find out.

    I have always wanted the slider blackberry. But somehow got all the BOLD models and now a Q10. So the Priv will be an upgrade for me....even though I think that the Blackberry Passport with its 4GB of RAM is a productivity beast....

    Small thread. Looks like most are planning to jump now or when they can afford it.

    I can afford it but have no interest. Just bought a new Z30 and a new classic as spares. Waiting to pull the trigger on passport. So basically stockpiling BB10 phones. Don't know what I will do after that.

    Maybe flip phones will make a come back and I can just get a regular call+txt phone.

    Not that I think it's overpriced ($100 over the LG G4 at $599 USD is very fair), but the Canadian dollar is not doing any favours. I can't justify paying $900 for any phone period, so I'll wait for a price drop.

    My biggest android gripe has always been the terrible email, so android with BB Hub should be interesting to see.

    if you can't swipe/peek into it or have a direct way of getting to it other than by app selection then i don't see the point of the hub on android. on BB10 it's not just the fact that it reconciles your messaging it's the ease of getting to it so quickly without disrupting your flow on the OS.

    I was. For sure. Now I am determined to wait and read reviews. And also watch what others say here on the forum. The big appeals to me are the keyboard. And the hub. But if the hub does not have real time inbox email sync like other Android phones I might skip it. I also might skip it if the security stuff interferes with running popular apps.

    If I do skip it I am going iPhone. And keeping my Passport as well.

    My favorite thing about bb10 has been security and permissions. I like denying specific permissions for apps. I think the Priv might help get stability for BB10 in the long run if they continue to support it
