BlackBerry has begun pushing out Android 6.0.1 to Priv models bought from the ShopBlackBerry store. We’ve been anxiously awaiting the update for some time now, and after a short beta period, the update is finally rolling out.
If you’re a Sprint customer waiting for the BlackBerry Priv to be added to the carrier’s lineup, bad news is here. Sprint, in addition to BlackBerry’s CEO, confirmed that it will not be selling the phone to customers… at all. This comes after plans were set for Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint to join AT&T as carriers offering BlackBerry’s flagship in 2016. Those carriers are all selling the Priv in the United States, but Sprint has backed out after keeping its customers waiting for months.
Hit the break for details.
It’s pretty clear that BlackBerry’s best days are behind them, but this doesn’t mean the company is done trying.
On April 5th BlackBerry confirmed that the price for an unlocked Priv smartphone has been reduced.
The newest update for BlackBerry devices provides an “unmatched level of privacy” for BBM, also adding a Retract feature and Timer.
BlackBerry is planning to rollout a Marshmallow beta test for the Priv this week!
