When the Priv by BlackBerry first went up for preorder, the shipping date was set for November 6th. Before the release date of the 6th, the date for new orders was pushed back to November 9th. Today, if you check the Priv page on Shop BlackBerry, the date is now set at November 23rd.
A BlackBerry representative told Mobile Syrup “We’ve begun fulfilling shipments as of November 6, but due to demand we’ve phased shipments and this is for next wave.”
We’ve heard many reports that the Priv is out of stock at many retailers, although word is also that those retailers had limited supply to begin with. It’s still great to see such initial demand for a BlackBerry phone. Have you checked your local retailers? Have you tried to buy and been unable to find a device?
