BlackBerry PRIV Priced at $749, Available November 16

BlackBerry previously opened a pre-registration page for the PRIV Android phone, one that simply sends information whenever new updates are available.  Now it appears that there is already a pre-order page where people can place their orders in advance.

Apart from the pre-order page for PRIV, BlackBerry also revealed the official specs of the phone and the official availability date, which is November 16 in the US.  For other parts of the world, information on launch is still not available.  As to pricing, the BlackBerry PRIV will not come cheap.  An unlocked version of the PRIV is priced at $749 in the US, or about Php34,000 in the Philippines, before tax.
