Bad News for those expecting devices from the UK Warehouse

I've just received word from a representative at MDA Limited that they've run out of devices for distribution and it wont be anytime soon until Blackberry sends them the next batch of units for shipment.

 

This is terrible as Blackberry has already delayed shipping our devices numerous times. They promised we would get our devices within 6-8 Weeks post launch but its already been 11 Weeks since Blackberry 10 was launched.

 

Lets just hope Blackberry sends the UK Warehouse enough units to ensure everyone gets a device in the next batch of shipments.

 

Even though the guys at BrandAlliance and MDA Limited are working hard to promptly reply to all our emails and to ensure we receive the devices on time, this is an utter dissapointment from Blackberry's side.

 

Lets just hope Blackberry doesnt let us down like this ever in the future afterall they are one of the best smartphone makers in the world.

Kind Regards,
Aman Ali

Well, I imagine you will all get LTE enabled devices then.

 

I think the early batch, in the UK where all STL-100-1 models, no LTE support.

 

Hope you get yours soon.

Re: Bad News for those expecting devices from the UK Warehouse

When did you contacted them? I think I saw few EMEA developers reported receiving devices in last few days.

 

I wonder why BlackBerry Developer Relations redirected me to BA and not to MDA Limited for questions about Z10 LE (The Netherlands receive devices from UK warehouse)

So if this is true(and it is) then we are all in trouble. We won't see our devices in May :smileysad:

I meant in May. 9 working days till the end of this month from logistic point of view are not enough to get and deliver our devices, so it remains to see what will happen in May.

And one question - We are talking about Z10 LE or Dev Alpha C?

Re: Bad News for those expecting devices from the UK Warehouse

Looks like we have different understanding of the phrase " We won't see our devices in May". To me it means we shouldn't expect devices before June :smileyhappy: Any way, I guess we talk here about Z10 LE mainly, since Dev Aplha C was received from USA directly by some UK developers

meego_man, well technically May-June. Somebody should contact Alec Sauders about this. It's getting very annoying.
