    If you did im jealous! 50 seems way to short a run for limited edition 500 would have been great.

    It was probably a test run to see if it would sell, and it sold within hours. I do agree however 50 is a very low number.

    Test run to see if an official black and gold would do well? Well then that 1/50 numbering at the side made it all but unlikely that they would produce more!

    I hope you're right and im wrong though.

    Maybe they've gone a step further and are trying to emulate Pagani. There were only 5 Pagani Cinques ever made.

    I agree 50 is a low number. It will in my opinion make the device that much more special. I was fortunate to have been able to get one. Unsure if I will just stare at the box when it arrives or open it.

    Rocking my red Passport now and my black Passport is in ready standby in my desk drawer. Maybe I will get a class case for it and hang it on the wall in my office!

    I'm happy for you. When you get it, please check if you get a special PIN like the Porsche series. Also, keep it with the box open in a glass jar

    Haha some people will never be satisfied. How would it be a limited edition if it's not "limited" and difficult to get your hands on?

    With the other shops asking $1000+, it would have been poor form on BlackBerry's part to undercut them with so many units. By providing an "official" Gold version, it sort of legitimizes the Gold-plating provided by these other shops.

    I thought it was only gold colored and not actual gold plated...

    Well said. I was hoping to get one myself. I went to buy it and it was sold out. However in my opinion it has already gained value

    Stupid blackberry.....not making your limited edition device available in far less limited numbers! A lot of people seem to be missing the concept of a limited edition entirely.

    Nice catch there. The one day I was late with reading BlackBerry news was today, and it may have been what cost me one of them.

    You can also engrave 51/50 limited edition on the side! Nice!

    You are correct. It is gold painted, not gold plated.
