UK retailer Carphone Warehouse gets hands-on time with the BlackBerry Priv

BlackBerry Priv

UK retailer Carphone Warehouse is known for some exclusive deals and tie-ups with manufacturers. Given its influence in the mobile industry, the retailer has now managed to nab the #BlackBerryPriv smartphone for a brief hands-on video ahead of its official release. As we all know, the Priv is barely a secret at this point with the company CEO himself showing around the phone at a public event recently.

Going by this, it seems like the smartphone will first arrive through Carphone Warehouse, at least in the UK. As for the hands-on video, we see the demonstrator going through various aspects of the handset including media, mails and the general UI. It’s clear that the device is running a relatively stock version of Android, but with some of BlackBerry’s custom features on board.

The Priv is security driven which will be at the core of the smartphone. We’re yet to get word on when the smartphone will be officially available for purchase, but hints like these don’t leave much to the imagination.
