    Checked inventory by ordering 900 on Shop Blackberry and observed a huge increase in inventory! Looks like red is definitely not 'Limited' afterall...

    Anyhow, still love the color al least

    And why is that? I've been watching it for 2 weeks crawling down by 8-10pcs per week and all of a sudden it jumps to 740...Details? I think you've got nothing...

    They may be selling units from other sales channels that no longer need the stock, no one really knows.

    BB never said 'limited' means limited thru ShopBB, just Limited Edition. Probably red isn't sought after as some people think even in the small numbers batch produced.

    Limited Edition without a number just means it'll be produced in few quantities than the Regular Edition.

    what we understand by limited?
    not easy to get? which is very general....
    normally it goes by number, the quatity they provide...
    the red passport limited edition.....produced in a certain quantity, and will not be available after all sold....
    imho, that's the scenario now....

    I don't know if they can do that if the inventory is listed as new.

    We don't know how many red cases were produced. This could just be a replenishment when more red cases became available to the assembly factory.

    joke from an old seinfeld episode "limited edition is limited to the number of people they can sell it to" there really is no limited edition except for the gold only 50 made.

    It's limited for you and ultra rare for me. We ain't even able to buy the red one in the netherlands lol. Even tho I'm liking my black PP, I would have liked it more (I think) in red.

    Even the black Passport is hardly available in retail stores in The Netherlands. The salesperson told me I was the first consumer he sold an Passport.

    Perhaps the word limited is being misinterpreted, it could simply mean less of the red were made compared to the other ones....

    OP: When you checked stock, what item showed up on that page where it said there was only 740? When I try to check, it goes from the red Passport to the P'9983. So maybe the stock check is not accurate:

    OMG! Shop BlackBerry Inventory for the Red Passport went from 250 to 740!!!!!-capture.jpg

    EDIT: The US shop doesn't have this bug and stays on the red Passport. Perhaps "Limited Edition" just means purchased online unlocked at full unsubsidized price. It would be interesting to know how many have been made and if there's a cut-off.

    This isn't difficult to understand surely?

    Normal phone - Available whenever as is the primary model

    Red limited - Available, but less will be made than the normal device due to it being a more divisive colour choice

    Numbered limited edition - genuinely limited!

    If blackberry had said the red was a numbered limited edition this would be different. But how many of you all own dvds or blu rays that say 'limited' or 'special edition' on them despite them being most likely the only version out there?
