The BlackBerry Priv has been out for a while now, and it was last year that we heard that the handset could be arriving on Verizon. Earlier this year, it was confirmed again that the handset was slated for the major carriers, but now that it is already March, we have to wonder what’s taking so long?
The good news is that you might not have to wait much longer. According to a recent tweet by Verizon’s VP Comms for Verizon’s Consumer and Enterprise businesses Jeffrey Nelson, it seems that the handset could be going up for pre-order on the 3rd of March. Nelson’s tweet is in response to a customer who asked to clarify the March 3rd rumors, to which Nelson did not exactly deny them.
However since this isn’t really an official confirmation yet, we suggest that maybe you should not get your hopes up just yet, but either way it’s probably the most encouraging sign we’ve seen so far. There are also reports that the handset will be sold on the 11th of March in its retail stores, so that’s another date to look forward to if you’d prefer buying it from a Verizon outlet.
In any case check back with us in the next couple of days to see if the BlackBerry Priv has indeed gone up for pre-order.
