Less than a week after BlackBerry CEO John Chen hinted that the Priv may receive an official price cut early next year, the device’s price has been slashed in the company’s home country of Canada.
Local carrier SaskTel is now selling BlackBerry’s debut Android phone for CAD 250 (around $180), which is down CAD 150 from its usual price of CAD 400.
Although the offer is available on purchases made through the carrier’s website as well as physical stores, the device is currently out of stock online. Other Canadian carrier’s such as Rogers are still selling the Priv for CAD 400.
The price cut also comes just days after Chen said that the company could launch a second Android smartphone.[“source-businesstoday”]
