    Order, pre-order, reserve, lay away, get one and wait, "slow down because I'm in a hurry" mode, "wish you could get one right now," "Oh my God "/"what a disaster of a launch," etc. Who cares what they mean. It will be available when it is available, and you will get it when you get it. Simple.

    What in the world is going on? How can they start orders without showing off the phone in its entirety?

    Previous launch events had no spinoff either so I can imagine that there will be almost no impact by skipping it.

    One of the tricks could be that they will have a little media tickle on Friday. Something like "we've tried to keep all the information about the Priv private..., as you can see that's quite hard to do. Get a Priv and we'll help you.."

    That's it! haha

    It will be pre-orders.

    It won't rub the carriers as the die hards who pre-order and pay cash likely weren't going to go the carrier-financed route anyway.

    The ship date will be the same day or after the carriers get it in stock. Before that date (Nov 16 until we hear differently), they will make some sort of announcement.

    But why the heck is MJB posting this on twitter? So weird. Either make an announcement or don't. But having an employee mention it on twitter is just odd.

    EDIT: looks like I was wrong, he confirms order:

    Without an launch, how do we know when the countries without shopBlackBerry.com will get the phone? Seriously. They need a launch or an official announcement on availability

    I guess instead of staying up I will just go to sleep and check in the morning. I am in the Mountain Time Zone, anyone wanna help with what time we should be expecting the orders to go live?
    As someone wrote above, I would expect it to be somewhere around 8AM EDT.

    Already nearly 4AM EDT, nothing yet.

    They probably don't want to leave it up to digital rivers to do it without Blackberrys supervision cause look what happened last time.

    So the launch event is literally a dude tweeting saying "order tomorrow"?

    Can anyone confirm that John Chen said no to spending $50 on a launch cake?

    Cutting costs is nice but what isn't nice is launching a product without telling the whole world about it! This is the most nonsensical product 'launch' I've ever seen.

    Or CEO Chen doesn't see Priv as an important device

    Astral Plane, sadly I have a technician coming in a few weeks to fix my worm-hole machine. Any chance I can use yours? I need to ensure I can buy my Priv and then come back in one piece.

    Does the Priv come with privacy glass?
    Does the Priv come with private parts?
    Does the Priv have a private sector?
    Does the Priv enable privilege?

    Does the Priv work in Cuba?

    I am Priv... I am leak.

    It means one thing, that BlackBerry truly has no clue what it's doing. This is the worst product rollout ever.
    Well look at it this way. The prefix "pre" has no business being in the English language to begin with.
    I mean , What???? you "Pre"order it, before you order it? You either Order it or you don't!
    You pre-board a plane before you get on it? Noooo! You board the plane. PERIOD!

    Do you "pre" slice your sandwich before you slice it?

    And you think Blackberry has no clue????
