    Check out the price of Apple's and Samsung's accessories, over charging at the OEM level is nothing new.

    BlackBerry posted yesterday on their Facebook page that the Unlocked Priv is now available from the worldwide big box chain I like to refer to as "Wally World". And yet, still not available from T-Mobile due to AT&T's stupid exclusivity agreement.

    I'm not sure what you mean here. Can't you use thus unlocked GSM "Priv" on the T-Mobile network?

    And, if so, what are you lamenting? This phone just not being available in T-Mobile stores???

    Yes, that is what he probably means (it not being available/sold in T-Mobile stores) since the unlocked Blackberry Priv will work on the T-Mobile network. The issue that people have is that when not going through the carrier (and agreeing to some sort of contract) and going through a big box store like Walmart or Amazon is that you need to pay full price for the phone which is quite a lot of money.

    Walmart blanket the nation, unlike T-Mobile. I can't recall ever seeing a T-Mobile store. Might as well get something on AT&T instead of an jnferior, distant third network.

    You must really live in the middle of nowhere if you have never seen a T-Mobile store. You live in Montana or somewhere like that?

    I can't recall ever having seen a T-Mobile store, even in my travels to the small part of the country that is served by the T-Mobile network. I've seen some Metro-PCS stores (also very hard to find), but not actual T-Mobile stores.

    I suggest he stop trying to find this phone on T-Mobile and get it on a real network.

    Probably just in a small dark corner inside his head.

    We have T-Mobile stores all over where I live. More than Verizon stores.

    T-Mobile only serves a small part of the country overall. Barely counts as a national network. Many states east of the Mississippi follow this as well, with only some of the state having T-Mobile... Wisconsin is just one example. Or Michigan, that is still mostly T-Mobile-free after their ballyhooed 2015 expansion. States that are blanketed by good networks.

    'Montana' is a bad example for T-Mobile shills to bring up. Real carriers have no problem providing at least some coverage there over much of it, while uncarriers abandon it.

    T-Mobile is good as a landline replacement for many, but a poor third or fourth choice if you want to be mobile. T-Mobile is objectively on a significantly worse network., and no tantrums and misleading claims by Legere can change this.

    No need to drive a huge distance to find -T-Mobile stores anyway . . why go there to get products that only work in a small part of the country?

    People only put up with significantly inferior choices like T-Mobile and Sprint and USCellular in order to save money. If Verizon plans cost as little as these 3, none of them would have customers anymore.

    Just like if a Lexus cost as little as a Chevy Malibu, no one would buy shoddy Malibu's any more.

    I'm more excited to see this come into being (though I know it won't be available to the general public):

    You might as well just blow a bunch of money on a BlackBerry By Porsche Design.

    I have been advocating this creation for quite some time. I remember getting flamed for suggesting this about 6 years ago. BB Android is the only way to go.

    It's a BlackBerry, but it runs Android. It has a physical qwerty keypad, but Lollipop navigation buttons as well. It's the BlackBerry Venice Slider, and if rumours are to be believed, it's coming to your carrier before Christmas.

    Famous phone leaker Evan Blass—who, for the record, was bang-on about Samsung's fall device launch—tweeted last night that the Venice would be available on all four US carriers come November. I can't imagine any reason why it wouldn't be available in Canada as well. Specs for the device are rumoured to be as follows:

    5.4 inch 2K display
    18 MP OIS rear camera (5 MP on the front)
    1.8 GHz Snapdragon 808 processor with 3 GB RAM
    Android Lollipop

    Now I'm not a BlackBerry user myself, but I imagine the big draws for fans of the platform would be the inclusion of the familiar (and impressive) BlackBerry Hub, along with the opportunity to finally be treated as a first-class Android citizen thanks to Google Play services. And for those Android users still pining for a physical keyboard, this is very likely the device for you.

    Are we excited about an Android-powered BlackBerry...?

    Sources:

    Ya know I've never owned a Blackberry or really used one that much but this concept is incredibly tempting. My dad owns one but it's only because his work paid for it. I hate that the app store is lacking a bit but like I said, I don't own one so I wouldn't be able to tell you side by side how good it is compared to others now that it's been years since Blackberry first got started. I love the idea though! Combine the best of both, I always say.

    This will be an all-Android year for BlackBerry's newest phones.
