    This is pretty impressive if I do say so myself. According to a BB spokesman, they will be starting the next Priv shipment in 'waves due to demand.' Now, like Android Headlines mentions, we do not know the exact numbers so this could all be a clever ploy. Even if it is slightly true, color me impressed BlackBerry.

    There are lots of peeps out there who like and want a decent BB product. The Priv just may be that product.

    People who had the BB before of say an s3 or s4 will be fine. I was coming from a nexus 6 with marshmallow so the lag was noticeable. Besides that there were some good features. I hope it ends up being a success and BB is able to take another crack at making another one next year.

    Maybe there is a larger group of die hard keyboard fans than many people realized? In addition to BlackBerry fans there may be a large amount of Android users that were waiting for the next QWERTY phone, regardless of who makes it?

    I find it funny that they're not releasing exact numbers. Maybe they only made 1000 units. Without the numbers, this isn't really all that impressive. Kinda makes it look like they were skeptical about how many units they'd move right away, so they didn't make enough, but what's the number?

    I was confused. More demand than supply means they had way more than they sold. Oops.

    This is a much better sign than the previous title suggested, as long as the numbers aren't ridiculously low.
