Blackberry has released an official video of their new PRIV, confirming what leaked images have led us to suspect and also whetting the appetite for loyal followers of the Canadian phonemaker.

For those who are not up-to-date, the PRIV is a marriage of something old, something new and something certainly borrowed. The physical QWERTY sliding keyboard is a throwback to the good 'ol days when phones lasted five days on a single charge. The something new comes in the form of a sleek design reminiscent of the Samsung 6 Edge. As for something borrowed, well Blackberry is turning to Android to boost its usability as well as flagging sales.

Have a look at the video and see what you think...
