Amazon is now offering the #BlackBerryPriv smartphone for just $649. The handset has been selling consistently for $699 since it was released, which makes this price reduction a pretty big deal.

BlackBerry 10 OS far from dead claims company CEO

A report from yesterday spoke of how #BlackBerry could be ditching its proprietary BB 10 OS in favor of #Android.

BlackBerry CEO, John Chen said the following in a

T-Mobile could release the BlackBerry Priv on January 26

People were initially skeptical about the #BlackBerryPriv, but the device has been quite popular in the markets since it was released.
