    Need advice still. I am in the states on AT&T. What will be my best route to get the Priv asap? Will it be to pre order tomorrow from BB directly? Or will another NA retailer have it shipped sooner?

    Does anybody have a preference from ordering from Amazon vs BlackBerry direct? I usually prefer Amazon but maybe BlackBerry direct will ship faster? Any insights?

    Same here, great return policy and customer service, but it appears ShopBB offers more discounts. However I've also heard horror stories about ShopBB that they send used devices as new and is a general PITA to deal with if something goes wrong. Friend got charged duties and taxes by UPS for a replacement.

    More like 599/799... since Rogers people are preordering at that price it stands to reason that USD will be at a comparable discount. Just like the passport launch at 699 with an instant 100 off. 599 is the correct price point for this phone. Anything above that and your are fighting an uphill battle. Blackberry phone launches need to command a discount to the general market phones, not a premium - reality is that outside of this community, people have a negative opinion of BlackBerry... I am not sure Chen is insulated from reality, so let's see what happens tomorrow.

    150$ discount? I think you're being overly optimistic

    Wait for amazon to get it. A pre order with digital river means nothing. There is no such thing as first come first serve in their system. You could order it they day they are set to ship and get your phone a week before the person that had a pre order in 3 weeks in advance.

    Very true. On the upper range of the optimism curve, but even a 100 discount would work for most at 649 - would be comparable to offerings out there.

    What a horrendous graphic. Whatever intern is in charge of marketing this should be fired.
    (the attachment seems to have disappeared from my "attachment library"... perhaps a CrackBerry mod objected to the image I had inserted here and removed the attachment? I didn't get a PM to that effect, but here's a link to the image: it is an altered version of the "Human Centipede" horror movie poster, and, as a horror movie poster, is it a bit scary. Moreso if you've actually seen the movie.)

    ...and the tagline would read:

    "BlackBerry Priv. You can even have Privacy when you're surgically attached to someone else."

    Will Amazon get it for pre order? Also, if I pre order from BB, can I cancel it if Amazon does offer pre oder afterwards?

    To be fair Amazon sold me a used Classic, but they were easy to deal with for return and replacement.

    Not really, I think some of the Canadian carriers already leaked their retail prices and they were about $150 CAD below the ShopBlackBerry "full retail" prices that hit their website for about 30 minutes...
