Codrut Nistor,

Verizon Wireless customers have been waiting to get the BlackBerry Priv for ages and now their wish is finally granted. This Android handset with physical keyboard and dual-edge display has hit the market back in November 2015, so it took Verizon almost four months to add it to its portfolio.

Strange enough, Verizon added the Priv handset silently to its website, so it is not known yet when will it hit the carrier's retail stores. For now, it can be acquired online for $720 USD outright, or $30 USD per month with a 24 month contract, next to the cost of the data plan that can range from $30 USD to $100 USD a month.

BlackBerry Priv is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, featuring 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal memory and additional storage via microSD, 18 MP main camera, 3410 mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0, and still runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
