The Privilege of Privacy

The BlackBerry Priv is the first smartphone from BlackBerry that will feature an Android (Lollipop) operating system and this is a move that makes a great deal of sense. 

The BlackBerry OS had already become a hybrid, by offering Android apps through the Amazon app store or through direct download .apk files. This move will however simplify the process and give users direct access to 1.3 million apps in Google Play store as well as giving Android Wear connectivity.


Update: The BlackBerry DTEK50 launches at a price lower than the Priv and becomes the UK's most secure Android smartphone. Read the BlackBerry DTEK50 news release here.


BlackBerry’s specialist apps remain in place and the BlackBerry grade security makes this the safest Android smartphone on the market, for both personal and professional users.

Available on pre-order, the BlackBerry Priv will ship in the UK from the week commencing 30th November.
