It's a strange new world out there, one in which data pirates and identity thieves roam the high seas of the digital ecosystem with unchecked hostility. Their favourite bounty? Unprotected smartphones, which are loaded with precious personal data, including passwords, credit card information, and private correspondence that can be used to hijack an identity -- anytime, anywhere.

Luckily, you're not quite so cavalier with your digital footprint anymore. You turned in your old "password protected" smartphone for the BlackBerry PRIV smartphone, a device that authenticates Android at every boot-up to ensure the integrity of the operating system, and automatically encrypts all data stored on the phone.

There's also BlackBerry DTEK, a built-in security system that actively monitors how apps and networks are interacting with your smartphone in real-time. DTEK gives you feedback on your current level of risk and provides easy-to-act-on steps to strengthen your security level going forward. With DTEK, you control the access that applications have to things such as your camera, microphone, location, and personal information.

The fact that the PRIV sports a stunning 5.43-inch dual-curved display and blends BlackBerry's classic physical keyboard with Android 5.1 -- giving you access to Google's entire ecosystem of apps -- is simply icing on the cake.

Talk about misleading advertising

There were only 19 units available in Canada: 9 in Thunder Bay and 1 in Halifax. BTW they were locked to Bell.

Blackberry IS in the Android Game

I had a Blackberry Torch and a Z30, both of which I loved. I did hours of research on Android phones but couldn't bring myself to abandon Blackberry. After reading the reviews, I knew the Priv was the "way" to go. Along with this amazing mobile comes a one year, 24/7 telephone assistance with a live agent to help you transition from BB10 to Android and anything else that you need help figuring out. I am a 75 year old woman who uses my BlackBerry for e-mails, BBM, texting and occasionally even as a phone. I am not technically oriented but I believe that doing your own homework and not listening to the naysayers will get you a better product.

Excellent Phone

I've been using the PRIV for a month now and love it. Beautiful screen, access to all the apps, great keyboard, BlackBerry Hub and BB security. The camera is awesome and it shoots amazing stills and video.
