The first Blackberry device to run Android will be available at AT&T Nov. 6th

One of the more intriguing phones of 2015 was recently announced just over a week ago, the Android powered Blackberry device called the PRIV. AT&T is the first U.S. carrier to pick up the PRIV and will make it available nationwide starting Nov. 6. The current pricing options are for AT&T‘s Next financing program,  which allows you to pay for your device in installments, as well as a Two-Year Commitment plan. The total installment price works out to be $740 which is $40 more than buying the phone direct from Blackberry at $699.99.

Or if you prefer the two-year contract method, you can get the phone for $249.99 up-front, but there are different costs associated with that plan. If you get a device on the Next plan, you will qualify for a monthly $25 dollar discount which works out to be $600 over the course of two years. If you consider the Two-Year Commitment price at $249.99, plus $600 in extra fees, the Next plan may be a better fit for you as it should save you over $100.
