On October 14, pre-registration for the Priv, BlackBerry’s slider that runs Android, went live. Now, the device is back on the company’s site ready for pre-order.

The site has the device listed for $699 for buyers in the United States, and BlackBerry says that the device will begin shipping on November 6. For buyers that aren’t in the United States, the Priv will retail for £559.00 including VAT. Meanwhile, in Canada, it’ll go for $899. Orders will ship to outside the U.S. on November 6, too.

The specifications for the Priv are still the same. That includes a 5.43-inch Plastic AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560×1440. There’s a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor under the hood, with 32GB of built-in storage and 3GB of RAM. On the back of the device there’s a 18MP camera with dual-LED flash, and on the front there’s a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The battery measures in at 3410mAh, while there’s a microSD card slot for expandable storage.

It’s running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box.

Do you plan on picking up the Priv?
