It’s hard to believe this day has finally arrived: once a far-flung pipe dream, then a realistic rumor, and now an undeniable unboxing, BlackBerry has finally made an Android phone. The Priv, originally referred to as the Venice, is set to ship on November 6th for customers in the USA. On the other side of the pond however, UK retalier Carphone Warehouse has received a release unit and unboxed it for all to behold:

The segment begins with a quick look at the box, with the lovely lady featured in the video pointing out the packaging contains the words “Privilege” and “Privacy”.

HTC Desire Eye Unboxing and First Impressions

HTC has received some flak with regards to the quality of their smartphone cameras, despite, or rather because of, their shift away from the norm, with UltraPixel technology. Since then, HTC has been trying their hardest to prove themselves in this field, with newer releases not only boasting better cameras, but with more software and hardware capabilities.

At a special event a month ago, HTC unveiled its latest smartphone offering, which takes things to a whole other level, featuring a 13 MP shooter with dual LED flash both at the front and back.

I had looked forward to spending a quiet weekend watching the Rugby World Cup along with a little bit of college football (gridiron for you non-US, non-Canadian readers). That changed yesterday when I got an e-mail from my friendly neighborhood Apple Genius telling me that his store had received a modest shipment of 16GB iPod touches.

Here’s what I ended up with:
