Button mashing was a thing of the past, at least for most smartphone users; don’t worry BlackBerry toting folks, we’ve got your backs and maybe soon people might give the qwerty loving brand a go again – thanks to the PRIV. The aforementioned device’s pre-order site went up and down and up again, with the price point getting a “discount” when it really went live. Perhaps one of the most anticipated launches in the brand’s history (you know, cause its an BlackBerry that runs on Android) will happen soon but a list of stock BB apps have been found on Google’s Play Store.

UPDATE: Pre-order page emerges again. Initial price revised.
No glitz and no glamour for the BlackBerry PRIV or maybe someone accidentally let the cat out of the bag too early. We’re not too sure since the manufacturer made their pre-order site live for awhile before removing the page. Well at least we know 3 things; the price, when it’ll ship and its internals – whoops.
Touting privacy as a selling point for years, BlackBerry’s brand might be dangerously hanging off a very small edge with their revenues continually sliding. When asked about the company’s prospects by the Verge during the recent Code Mobile conference, their CEO said that failing to reach 5 million units sold, the company might abandon the mobile business.
