BlackBerry Priv officially selling for RM3,559

11street is offering a discount to the first 60 buyers

Oh yes, it's true the BlackBerry Priv is going for a whopping RM3,559. The good news is that you can get a discount by getting it from 11street here. That's only if you're one of the first 60 to buy the phone.

Celcom is also offering the device for preorder at its Blue Cube outlets, currently the only telco that seems enthused by the pricey device that is both a throwback and a step forward for RIM.

While it offers some serious flagship specs and high-grade security, paying through your nose for the privilege is not appealing. Selfie-lovers, take note that the Priv does not love you - the front-facing cam is a mere 2MP while the back camera is 18MP. Still, the physical keyboard and gorgeous curved screen are certainly attractive.
