BlackBerry Priv fans: your wait just got longer. A notice posted on the BlackBerry site has a new release date for the Priv. BlackBerry has cited unforeseen issues as the source of the new delay. BlackBerry has a lot riding on this new phone, delays are not a welcome sign. The verbiage suggests there may be future delays, with ship date only “expected” to be November 9th. This puts a whole weekend in between the original ship date of November 6th and the new date.
The first batch of orders are still on schedule to ship November 6th, however the new orders are shipping November 9th, as stated on BlackBerry website.
