Carphone Warehouse goes hands on with the Priv by BlackBerry, pre-orders now live

Earlier this month, Carphone Warehouse was gauging customer interest in the Priv by BlackBerry by having set up a 'register for updates' page on their site and now, it looks as though they've decided to go all in on the device. A new hands-on video posted to their YouTube account offers up a closer look at the Priv, and it's certainly looking more polished than some of those earlier leaks that have made their way onto the internet.

BlackBerry has not as of yet announced a release date for the Priv but as we already know thanks to BlackBerry CEO John Chen, it's expected to be available by the end of the year, and that falls in line with the earlier rumors of a November release. You can sign up for updates on the Priv through the BlackBerry site or if you're in the UK, you pre-order it from Carphone Warehouse. Go ahead and let us know in the comments if you're going to be picking one up or passing on it.
