T-Mobile may launch the BlackBerry Priv on Jan. 26th

I don’t know about you, but I hate when I see a phone that I’ve been eyeing not launch on my particular network. AT&T is one of those infamous carriers that often snatch phone exclusivities. One of its recent misdeeds was with the BlackBerry Priv.

BlackBerry has finally redeemed itself in the mobile industry, by making the smart move to give up its struggling OS and adopt Android. While the company is not out of the woods yet, many would agree that the Priv was exactly the breath of fresh air that BlackBerry needed.

Now it needs to expand from AT&T, and fortunately, that will soon be the case. An alleged screenshot from a T-Mobile calendar of events has just leaked that tags “BlackBerry Venice Launch” on January 26th. Recall that the Priv’s codename has long been “Venice”.


There’s no word if the Priv will join T-Mobile‘s Jump on Demand! program. Let’s hope so, because it would add variety to a Samsung and LG dominated lineup.

For those of you on Verizon, don’t fret. The Big Red has hinted on its Twitter page that the Priv is dropping soon.

    Strongly considering it. I’m getting fed up with on-screen keyboards and the Priv may be my relief.

      You get both options with the Priv.
      Touchscreen and the slider keyboard for longer emails etc., which is great for everyone.
