Demand has caused BlackBerry to push Priv shipments to November 23rd

Before putting its Android-powered Priv up for sale, BlackBerry publicly said it was “overwhelmed by the outpouring of interest.”

The 5.4-inch QWERTY slider was recently released through BlackBerry’s online store and across several carriers in Canada, United States and the United Kingdom.

And while the Priv started shipping to customers last Friday, anyone interested in purchasing an unlocked Priv will now have to wait a little longer. According to ShopBlackBerry.com, Priv orders have slipped to the week of November 23rd, 2015.

When reached for comment on the delay, a company representative told us, “We’ve begun fulfilling shipments as of November 6, but due to demand we’ve phased shipments and this is for next wave.”
