The BlackBerry Priv was an odd device for many reasons.

The BlackBerry Priv on AT&T is finally getting its Marshmallow update

BlackBerry touted the security features of its Android build when announcing the Priv. It launched with Lollipop, but we thought surely it'll get a quick 6.0 update being so close to stock.

Android 6.0 is hitting the Priv on AT&T.

T-Mobile Pulls The BlackBerry Priv From Its Website

The BlackBerry Priv was supposed to be a big step forward for the once-king of smartphones. After having no luck with BlackBerry OS 10, the company launched its first Android phone late last year.
