BlackBerry's Android flagship slider smartphone is now available for purchase exclusively from the high street retailer Carphone Warehouse, which is selling the unlocked model at £559.99. If you buy the phone before 31 December, you will be entitled to get Google Play Music free for three months.

With Google Play Music, you can stream more than 30 million songs and even listen to the music offline. The same offer is applicable for any Android phone you purchase before the said time.

The Priv is also on sale via Pay Monthly deals on contracts with O2, Vodafone and iD at the retailer. The lowest deal starts at £49, without upfront payment from Vodafone. The two-month contract gives you unlimited minutes and texts in UK and 2GB 4G data. Another deal coming from O2 starts at £32.50, with an up-front payment of £79.99.

Other retailers in the country such as Clove and Unlocked Mobiles are yet to begin pre-orders. However, the Priv is now in stock at the UK ShopBlackBerry site.

In early November, BlackBerry had announced the availability of Priv via AT&T retail stores and online in the US. It also went on sale in Canada through a number of carrier networks including Bell, Rogers, SaskTel, Telus and Wind. Users can even buy the handset from BlackBerry's official site.
