AT&T begins BlackBerry Priv sales on November 6 for $249 on contract

AT&T has announced that beginning on November 6, customers will be able to purchase the BlackBerry Priv, making the carrier the first in the US to offer the smartphone. We've seen pre-orders go live already for the Priv from a variety of sources, and now we know when you'll be able to walk into a retail store and grab one yourself.

For those who may forget, the Priv is BlackBerry's first Android-powered smartphone with a 5.4-inch display, an 18MP camera, 32GB of internal storage and a 3410mAh battery to get you through the day.

AT&T will be offering a few different payment options for those looking to get a Priv. On a new two-year contract, the smartphone will run $249. If you'd rather pay over time, you can grab it for $24.67 a month for 30 months, $30.84 a month for 24 months or $37 a month for 20 months. Will you be picking up a BlackBerry Priv from AT&T on November 6? Be sure to let us know in the comments below.
