Verizon BlackBerry Priv could be available to pre-order this week

Looks like Verizon will begin taking pre-orders for the BlackBerry Priv this week. Replying to a user query on Twitter, Jeffrey Nelson – who is the VP of Communications for Verizon’s consumer and enterprise businesses – effectively confirmed that pre-orders will go live on March 3.

This comes less than a couple of months after Nelson revealed that Verizon will start carrying the Android-powered handset “by the end of March (if not sooner).” The Verizon variant wascertified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in December.

Reports say the carrier will start selling the device on March 11, which is the same day when Samsung’s newest flagships – the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge – will be released worldwide.
