BlackBerry Priv pre-orders delayed until November 24th

BlackBerry Priv pre-orders delayed until November 24th
A couple of days ago, we told you that heavy demand for the BlackBerry Priv had led the manufacturer to push back the shipping date on new orders to the week of November 23rd. Pre-orders of the company's first Android powered handset started shipping on November 6th. But today, a fresh report reveals that not only are new orders delayed, but some pre-orders are now being delayed as well, and won't arrive until November 24th. The pre-orders in question are for the unlocked version of the Priv, ordered from BlackBerry's online store. Those affected have received an email from BlackBerry, explaining the delay in shipping.

Besides BlackBerry's ShopBlackBerry website, U.S. consumers can purchase the Android powered slider from AT&T. Verizon has also announced that it will be offering the phone soon.

With the BlackBerry Priv apparently off to a good start, yesterday images of a new Android powered 'Berry surfaced. Dubbed the BlackBerry Vienna, this model features a physical QWERTY keyboard, physical Android keys under the screen, and a look that doesn't exude the premium feel that the Priv does.
