  1. Yup. Just checked and it costs $40 to reserve a BB10 device which is either applied to your account when you receive the device, or credited to your account if you decide to cancel.

  2. Did it ‘just in case’ and got an email back saying that I’m in the 153rd slot. Not sure if that’s ‘in general’ or for Vancouver where I live.

    It’s getting more real.

  3. Rogers has my $40. Registered!!!!

  4. Whoo Hoo… I was looking for this last week but I guess I was early. I’m doing it now! :)

  5. Number 336!

    Getting very excited!
