Here is an opportunity to get a brand new BlackBerry Priv free of cost. To commemorate ABC’s widely-viewed morning news show “Good Morning America’s” 40th anniversary, the network has partnered with the Canadian tech giant to offer free goodies.
As it turns out, 40 new units of the BlackBerry Priv smartphone will be given away for free to the audience members Wednesday. Not to forget, GMA weather anchor Ginger Zee apparently showcased the Priv to the GMA viewers Tuesday.
BlackBerry’s COO Marty Beard will reportedly help in selecting the winners on the show. The show begins at 7 a.m. EST and hence, interested fans may have to start very early to reach the venue. The Good Morning America aka GMA gets broadcasted in front of live audience at the “Times Square studio at Broadway and 44th Street in New York City.” Interested readers can also watch the live stream of the program via ABC’s official Website.
On the other hand, the BlackBerry Priv can now be ordered from AT&T and also from the official BlackBerry Store. Verizon will also be offering the device shortly. Speaking of price, the flagship will set the buyers back $699.
Here is a quick summary of the BlackBerry Priv specifications: The device comes with a 5.4-inch AMOLED screen, aided by 1,440 x 2,560 pixels screen resolution. This translates to a pixel density of a cool 541 ppi. Stand-out features include a physical QWERTY keyboard that slides out and dual-curved-edge display.
Under the hood, the Priv by BlackBerry is powered by a Snapdragon 808 chipset, working in tandem with a hexa-core CPU, running at 1.8 GHz. The Adreno 418 GPU takes care of the graphics side of things, while a 3 GB of RAM backs the device. The handset comes equipped with 32 GB of native storage and microSD card support for expansion of up to 2 TB.
