    So this was interesting. I started entering 999 QTY for the Priv at 10am today, and it told me they only have 965 available.
    checking right now (12:25p), it says 840. so is that good or bad? what do you guys think..

    How did you do that? I can't even enter a number greater than 100, and even that I cannot actually find a button to add it to the cart, lol!

    2pm EST 794 available.

    After clicking pre-order, it puts it in your cart and then you can change the quantity.

    Basically, yes! And those were fans that knew about it. I mean, BlackBerry didnt let the public know...

    Hard to say how good it is since there hasn't been any real marketing by BB yet. I remember seeing a figure that Apple did over 30K an hour for awhile after the iPhone 6 launch but that is with tons of fanfare and world class marketing.

    Down in the 600's now:

    If nobody does it before tonight when I get home, I will bring up the Passport threads and compare.

    Not totally fair since this is an unannounced preorder vs a launch event revealing, but should still be interesting.

    If that's just the US, I think that's quite impressive given no marketing. It'll be interesting to monitor that figure over the coming days

    I honestly think they are not going to sell many. Don't think atleast a handful are aware PRIV can be pre ordered now or is releasing next month. Pity.

    Tracking the UK data - looks like they started with 500 and have had pre-orders for... 103.

    Depressing numbers if true, but not surprising.

    This doesn't mean squat. Only people like us even know about it. This device will bring lots of folks back to BlackBerry once they realize it's out there.

    Well it's one of two things - either terrible sales or the infamous crackberry hardcore don't actually exist anymore.

    We exist! I wouldn't look at any sales numbers from today. The numbers mean absolutely nothing.

    By Crackberry hardcore don't you mean the "I will buy it when there is a BB10 version" crowd?

    Sure the fact that in the UK, they are selling about 5 an hour on a pre-order means nothing... nothing at all. It demonstrates the strength of the loyal fanbase.

    I predict sales in their millions.

    They most probably had a first run of about a few thousands

    They shut it off before I could look at CAN - but looks like 500 UK, 1000 US - there were 550 left when they switched off US, there are 388 left in the UK.

    Actually you might've missed one factor, in UK the preorder was open a few days earlier at CPW. So those who are okay with this price point likely would've already preordered. I'm sure there are those like me who are waiting for the first round of discount or carriers, so I'm not too concerned about the "low" preorder numbers.

    Good point - I was mistaken as well and miscounted- it's 4 an hour.

    For those people comparing it to the Passport release, there is one big difference. The Passport was available on Amazon also. For the Priv, this is it (besides the carriers).
