    Yes. It is good.

    How good will depend on how many units they had available.

    1.000.000 is good. 10.000.000 is what would get the Street, BRG, The Verge and half the US to have a heart attack.

    If they had 1.000, it's good that there are people looking for the device, but seriously?!

    So, we need numbers.

    Probably apprehensive stock. No way they would make the same mistake as with the Z10. Doubt it was even in the hundred thousands.

    Exactly this. But they would have to have a decent amount already produced or currently in production... cost-wise they wouldn't just make a limited run then start building them again. There would be also too much of a lag time between order placement and fulfillment.

    Also, Amazon has been sold out for a few hours now as well.

    How can it be sold out on Amazon? It only has pre-order.

    You're right- my mistake! I thought it said out of stock and the button earlier was to receive an email about availability... not for pre-order

    Shopblackberry is now showing it as backordered until October 6th, which is a pretty positive sign. Amazon is still taking preorders, but who knows how many folks that ordered it through them get backordered. Perhaps BlackBerry ought to release the unlocked versions of future devices in much the same manner they have with the Passport.

    I remember hearing on BNN that Chen stated "they need to sell 240, 000 units to become profitable", let's hope they met that quota, but I'm sure their first production batch was less than this.

    Few things irritate me as much as manufacturers' gaming mass-product availability. I know its only good marketing to contrive at least a short-lived shortage, particularly given the lazy tech journalists' bottomless appetite to publish stories of product runs. It is really galling with a device like the Passport, with a form-factor so new that it begs being held first in hand before you buy. So we get whipsawed between guesswork and speculation as to where and when it will be available pre-launch, to exhilleration over the news that it will be immediately available in the US, to abject, black depression when availability quickly become illusory.

    Seriously, ugh! No, seriously, I am glad to see early evidence of demand. I don't generally buy my devices off contract, but the Passport was sitting in my Amazon cart at almost the same instant the stories of back order broke.

    I placed order at 09/24/2014 15:02 or 3:02PM Eastern, from the US....my connection to the store was either from FL or MI. At the time Amazon, using the link on Find out where you can get the BlackBerry Passport - US, was soldout/unavailable for purchase. I could only able to signup for notifications.

    Not sure if this helps anyone to judge sales volume, or purchasing experience for customers.

    So it's basically sold out everywhere online other than physically at the carriers?

    Good news!
