    Does anyone know when they will open Pre-Order? Why didn't they open Pre-Order today or announce a date? Isn't that a bit odd?

    Thoughts?

    It will be shipped around Christmas. They haven't finished manufacturing the inventory just yet.

    I agree, very strange, especially as they said that they will be launched before the end of the month.....

    It's BlackBerry Mobile, which is a smartphone company that is composed of mostly laid of BlackBerry employees.

    It wouldn't be a BlackBerry device launch without a weak launch.

    Just once I would like them to launch a new phone, well priced with great software and be ready to go in the major markets globally.

    Launch on a Thursday? Shipping out devices on a Monday. Strike while the iron is somewhat hot. This isn't a device that is going to sell tens of millions of units but still, lost sales are lost sales.

    One of the issue they had with the Key 1 was they had Sooooooooooo much positive press from everyone and than it took months for the device to be available in general. It was comical with the "Best Buy is fully stocked" routine only for them to be bone dry 3 hours later.

    Don't ya want to wait until we confirm the screen is glued on?

    Seriously though reviewers don't have their units yet. It's going to be a while. Probably late July for widespread NA availability

    I think it was said during the livestream pre-order starts sometime in June with no specific date. So probably at the end of June for pre-order and who knows when devices will be in physical stores.

    Here in Germany Saturn is already taking pre-orders for both 64 gig variants (black and silver) as well as the 128 gig black dual-SIM model.

    Preorder is available now from Selfridges UK and they offer international shipping. They say the pre orders will arrive on the 26th of June.

    Once bitten twice shy. This time I am sure history will not repeat itself . I have Passport and KeyOne but I am lucky I didn't encounter screen lifting issue. I will go for the KeyTwo confidently without bothering about these issues.

    It's odd. They said in the presentation will begin shipping pre-orders by the end of the month for Canada, US, UK, France, UAE and I think a few others. And remaining markets early July.

    So if they're shipping by the end of this month why no pre-orders yet or mention of a pre-order date?

    They are merging with Sprint so maybe there is hope though I won't hold my breath...

    Here in the Netherlands, belsimpel.nl is already taking pre-orders. My mum pre-ordered a Silver 64 GB one.

    Preorders will probably start late June with a July 1st ship date giving them time to ship the inventory around to the dealers. Hopefully they have a few major cell companys going to sell them also not only best buy and amazon here in the us

    Is anyone in the US doing orders yet? it seemed like Amazon was the best source for the KEYone so perhaps that will be true again.

    I genuinely feel we will be able to have devices in hand by the end of the month. But carrier support is a must if this thing has any actual chance oif being a real contender #3 device behind Apple/Samsung.

    I tried Amazon in the pre-dawn hours of launch day. Already sold out. Ask yourself “how can that happen?”
