Watch this awkward BlackBerry Priv demo given by the CEO himself [VIDEO]


Earlier today BlackBerry finally let the cat out of the bag and confirmed rumors they are indeed close to launching a new Android slider they’re calling the BlackBerry Priv. It was the very same day last week we got an early sneak peek at the Priv in a hands-on video, but in case you were looking for something a little more official, BlackBerry CEO John Chen gave BNN’s Amber Kanwar a worldwide exclusive first look at the phone.

In his extremely awkward hands-on on demo (it’s clear Chen still needs to get better acclimated with the new OS), the CEO fumbles around the OS a bit before giving up. He also mentions again that Priv is short, not only for privacy, but the privilege you end up with after buying the phone. Ummm… Okay. In case you wanted another look at the phone that could be ours — and many of yours — next daily driver, the cringe-worthy video can be found below.
