The Blackberry Priv is now up for pre-order in the US for $749. That’s kind of a crazy steep price that I can’t imagine a whole bunch of people being willing to step up to the plate to take a crack at, but hey, you have all been excited enough about it that anything is possible. With that said, tonight’s open pre-orders mean we finally have the full list of specs for this Android-powered security machine. And honestly, they sound freaking amazing. 

We have a 5.4-inch QHD display, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage (with SD support up to 2TB), Snapdragon 808 processor, 18MP rear camera, 3410mAh battery, Quick Charge 2.0 support, wireless charging support with both Qi and PMA standards, and of course, that slideout keyboard that also doubles as a touchpad. Seriously, Blackberry kind of went H.A.M. with this phone.

Unfortunately, this is an unlocked phone that only works on AT&T and T-Mobile here in the US. If you were hoping for Verizon support, you will have to hope and wait for Verizon to announce their plans to carry it.

The rest of the details can be found below.
