BlackBerry Priv

Recommended Posts

Well looks like I'm waking up the BlackBerry part of device's. BlackBerry L6ARHM180LW has appeared on the FCC OET. So the usual analyst might want to go take a look. https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/ViewExhibitReport.cfm?mode=Exhibits&RequestTimeout=500&calledFromFrame=N&application_id=BmDugNYTp5U9mtbkNAFFZg%3D%3D&fcc_id=L6ARHM180LW

If this thing wasn't $750, i might think about it.  Is Blackberry going for the high end market or trying to fail to dump the hardware side of the company?

 

My mom and wife love physical keyboards, but damn...

 

I see Band 41 in the tests, but no Band 25 or 26

No CDMA testing either.  Is there another model that will include CDMA support?  This appears to be a GSM phone for Blue/Magenta

yeah it's a big bummer they just couldn't add bands 25/26 and do what google/moto do.

 

It's an interesting phone, that's for sure.

There is a model with B25 and B41, but no B26 or CDMA.

Eh, who needs CDMA now!

 

I wish it was B26/41 - but B25/41 might be worth playing around with.

 

if I can scoop one up off eBay for cheap, I might test it out.

This is when I will get one.  Like I did with my BB Z30.  I've had a lot of fun with that device.

If there is a device that will work on the Sprint network, i'd pick one up from eBay as a spare or to see if either of the ladies liked it better.

BlackBerry Priv $899:  http://shop.blackberry.com/store/bbrryus/en_CA/pd/productID.328095700/categoryID.70449700

 

The specs are pretty impressive, and this model will be a solid device for AT&T and T-Mobile customers.  No mention of Carrier Aggregation, but it must be present in some form since B29 is listed and it can only be used aggregated with another band.  I would like to know the particulars.  Like, does it do B17+B4 and B12+B4 and B17+B5?  Etc.

$899 in Canada. $699 in the US per this link. http://blogs.blackberry.com/2015/10/priv-pre-order-begins-today/

Thanks for the clarification. The $200 premium in Canada is about right given the current exchange rate.

It does band 12 for Tmobile so I will probably get one. Does anyone know if it will have an external antenna port?

Verizon says the Priv is "coming soon". Does this mean a Sprint variant is also coming?

No, but there are some that hope it will. Someone asked Sprint on Twitter, but they aren't talking yet.

That might have been me, LOL. Anything in the FCC docs?

    • It's a cheap ploy to garner attention.    And ... at the cost of Sprint and T Mobile's merger.      Hopefully they will remember that and if the merger goes through, they roll Boost into Metro PCS and tell him "See ya!"   
    • That's all nice and what not but it's dependent if the merge happens.
    • I think the others are going to go faster than you think...Probably not much further than 2020 (2 years).     T-Mobile is already re farming their older 3G space... Neville Ray had said in the past that he would like to follow Verizon's shut down date not too much further than what Verizon's is. (see link below)      AT&T just shut their 2G down in January and is now eyeing 3G's deadline. They have not made a date public. T-Mobile plan to sundown 3G
    • I think they should tell him to go suck an egg!    60 MHz is a lot of spectrum... isn't it nearly half of what they have in the 2500 MHz band?  (150 MHz total)...   Why does he think he's entitled to it?   What about the other MVNO's?
