BlackBerry Priv reaches Verizon Wireless with a steep price tag

BlackBerry Priv

The #BlackBerryPriv flagship is finally available for purchase from #VerizonWireless. The handset has only been available from AT&T and T-Mobile up until now with #Sprint expected to get it soon as well. But its arrival on Big Red will be massive news for fans of BlackBerry.

However, there’s one little concern with Verizon’s model of the flagship. While the Priv has been retailing for nearly $699 and roundabouts, the Verizon model carries a price tag of $720. That’s not all that expensive compared to the smartphone’s off contract/unlocked pricing, but it’s still worth pointing out.

This effectively brings the monthly installment price to $30/month for a period of 24 months. That’s quite something considering that the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (which is on pre-order now) are priced similarly in the market. So if you were a Verizon Wireless customer, would you be willing to shell out $720 bucks for the Priv or would you rather settle for some of the newer flagships? Sound off in the comments section below.
