    I was starting to get frustrated about the release date not yet announced for the US when I decided to look up the iPhone X's announce date and subsequent release date. It was announced on 09/12/17 but it wasn't released until 11/03/17. That's over a month! BlackBerry Mobile at least has pre-orders in some markets. This helps me to be a little more patient in waiting for my chance to buy the KEY2!!

    Really this is the way most phones are released. But I remember the good days. The Passport was announced and went on sale the same day. Overnighted and had it the next day. Guess we don’t get that anymore.

    Except the difference is BB has not announced a release date for US.

    Whether it's 2 weeks or 2 months, they should communicate a date, no?

    They’re hoping for USA carriers.

    My sentiment exactly. It's the silence that's weird.

    They did say at the launch Canada and US will have devices ordered and shipped by the end of June.

    They said US in June so I expect to be able to buy it this month. We’ll see.

    True. Which is why I’m hesitant to go with the international unlocked version.

    Yeah I’m just going to wait it out and see. Current phone is doing fine. Couple weeks is no big deal. Based on their Instagram feed I feel like we’re pretty close to them giving a date.

    I'm extremely frustrated with the lack of info. I'm very frustrated that BB is stupid enough to not have the phone reeady for purchase on launch day.

    I've always & only used BB's but I am constantly fed up with them over the years that I've been doing some serious reading & researching touchscreen only phones.

    It'll be in our hands late June or early July. No need to fret at all.

    Hopefully, there will be better hands on reviews by then, meaning the reviewer has been hammering on the released phone for weeks, maybe a full month.

    I don't know for sure but I would guess they want to see how the phones are received in the east first.... Maybe they release into real world use that's close to "home" first... Why ship millions of phones overseas only to find out the screen falls out (like their keyone mistake)... Release closer to to "home", see how they do, then have a statement on when it's ready to go to the states... So in this case, it's hard to say a date... Maybe...

    Not a bad idea but why doesn't BB just tell us the damn release date in North America?!!?!?

    Hopefully so. However, it will have zero impact on me buying the device.
