    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????
    A pre-order generally means you're indicating you're willing to order ahead of actual launch/ship date and that you're *willing to wait* for the order to be fulfilled. If you order something, you generally have the expectation that it will ship immediately or very soon. Back-order, another term, in a way, is similar to pre-order, in that you're ordering, but know that fulfillment will be at a later date.
