Earlier, BlackBerry was listed on Amazon and Best Buy. The buzz is that Amazon sold out all devices within a few hours. It was then listed on Best Buy. Right now, it is not available with this retailer as well. It seems that BlackBerry Priv sales are with each passing day increasing.
BlackBerry Priv was listed on Walmart. If reports are to be believed, within a day’s time, all units were sold out on Walmart as well. As you can see in the picture below, the site has activated “Get In-Stock Alert” button. The online store also says that “Shipping” and “Free Pick-Up” are not available.
There is still no information about how many devices were available in any of the retailers. If you are not willing to wait for the device to come back on the retailer’s site, your only option is to buy Priv from the BlackBerry website itself. This is the only site that still shows “In Stock.”
