    I did not read anything in the referenced article saying Rogers Communications has ended pre-orders. Maybe I missed it?

    The title of the post is INCORRECT. According to the article mentioned by the OP. The only reference to Rogers is:

    "Wireless carriers already report strong demand for the new devices. Rogers Communications Inc, Canada's top wireless carrier and the first globally to take pre-orders for the new devices, said orders are already in the thousands.

    "Our customers are excited," said John Boynton, Rogers' head of marketing, adding that some users are holding off on upgrades in anticipation of the BB10 launch."

    This is all I saw. Nothing about ending pre orders though

    Fix the title. Rogers has not closed pre-orders.

    2.5 thousand is still "thousands"

    My post was facetious, and mocking a previous claim seen on a different tech website.

    Besides, I really doubt if "thousands" really was 2500, it would have made in to a generally positive article.

    I have a BlackBerry Z10 reserved but if it is not available on the same day as the general public can walk into my wireless carrier to buy it, I will walk into the store, buy it and cancel my reservation. I am not going to wait up to 15 days after public availability from my wireless carrier.

    the reservations are meant for walk in pick up anyway. Not after general release

    you had to tell them what store you wanted to pick it up on the reservation page for rogers. and you can get it at another one if you see it somewhere else first

    I don't think thousands is that good. I would have expected 10s of thousands or more. Thousands is just lukewarm.

    people are reserving something (and had to pay $40 on their last bill) and they dont truly even know what it is. id say thats pretty good

    Considering that not even a price, or final specs have been released. I would say thousands is pretty good.

    We're not iSheep here. We don't jump on a bandwagon and say Apple made it so it's good. Well, except for the 2500 that preordered that are saying the previews are good enough, and start throwing money at the screen. lol

    Not that there is anything wrong with it. But I think most people are looking for something more solid, like pricing, final specs, more details.
    I know my friend isn't preordering because his contract doesn't end until November of this year.
    And others are simply going to get it instore on the day of release. This is especially since the Rogers preorder doesn't guarantee that you will get the phone first.

    at 2000 (based on that persons post) that is $80 000 just to be on a list... if i made a product that people paid $80 000 for just to have a name on a list for i would say i did a good job.

    Preorder for anything that hasn't been had a price tag revealed is pretty impressive.

    Ya, it's legit. My UPS tracking page says "Out for Delivery" but that doesn't neccessarily mean I'll be able to pick it up before the 5th. Not sure what kind of limitations they have but I will most definitely be making an effort once I have confirmation that it's delivered.
