    Just looked on Amazon US and saw the Priv finally for sale at $899!

    Is this just a pre launch price?

    I've been searching Amazon every day and night waiting for this, but this is still too high for my likings. It also looks like it's sold by Blackberry? Thoughts?

    It's really not hard to look and see its not being sold directly by Amazon as yet, but by a reseller.

    Sounds like NGP is trying to take advantage of people...

    Don't buy unless Amazon is the direct seller!

    "Sold by mercate group" someone is trying to pull a fast one, and make 200 in the process. Don't buy this version, besides, why pay more on Amazon when your supposed to pay less.

    That's because while it is "on Amazon" it is not being sold directly by Amazon.

    Just a company trying to overcharge, the price and Nov. 5-10 is pretty clear they are buying and marking up price pretty significantly.

    Yep. This is the "new" Amazon way; anyone can set up a "store" and list there, at whatever price. They take their 15% commission off the top, incidentally.

    Until "Sold and shipped by Amazon" is in the description it's not Amazon.

    Wow...enormous price! Things like that will scare off people even slightly considering the phone, big time! I know there are less expensive options ordering direct or B&H, etc., but for people mildly curious and just 'window shopping' on Amazon, they will look at the Amazon price and simply walk away and never search for the Priv again.

    175 million people (in the perfect demographic) visit the Amazon website each month.

    Saw the same thing on eBay. Marked up by $200-400.

    If I was going to buy from Amazon, they would have to be direct sellers.

    B&H is accepting orders for the Priv. But their site states that shipments are to start around November 20. Bummer!
