Leo Gets the BlackBerry Priv Android Smartphone

Episode 1247

BlackBerry Priv

Leo got the BlackBerry Priv this week, which he says has to be the worst name for a phone ever. It's supposed to mean "Privileged" and "Private." Leo says that since BlackBerry has dropped their own OS in favor of Android, that the Priv is a very good mobile phone. There are some old things that make it a BlackBerry, like the physical keyboard. It brought back memories, but Leo says it was a difficult experience to use to type, leaving Leo to think that this kind of design is an anachronism. It's a feature whose time is over, and we've moved on. It's essentially just a very expensive, though nice, feature phone.
