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.

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.

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.

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.

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.
