BlackBerry has been in the news recently as just last week the company released the first Android smartphone it has ever made, it’s obviously a very big deal, and as people contemplate whether or not they want to take a chance on BlackBerry again the company is gradually expanding sales to more retailers. Earlier today the Priv arrived on Amazon but it didn’t take long for the online retailer to sell out of initial inventory.

This appears to be in line with recent reports that there’s actually significant consumer demand for the BlackBerry Priv, with the company even having to push back shipments as it struggles to contain the demand supply gap.

The unlocked version of BlackBerry Priv went up on Amazon earlier today for $699, that’s the same price that BlackBerry is charging through its own online store, but soon after Amazon was out of inventory. The device is now out of stock.

Amazon’s listing for this handset now states that the device is “currently unavailable,” and that the retailer doesn’t know right now when or if this item will be back in stock again. It’s likely that BlackBerry will be sending more inventory to Amazon real soon, but customers may still have to wait.

There are obvious advantages to ordering from Amazon, if you’re a Prime member you get free two-day shipping, but for now you might have to look elsewhere. BlackBerry Priv is available for purchase in the United States via BlackBerry itself, AT&T and B&H.
