UPDATE: BlackBerry has pulled the US pre-order page from its online store, suggesting someone pushed the ‘go’ button a little too soon.

After launching a pre-registration page for its Android slider and subsequently starting UK pre-orders, BlackBerry today has started accepting pre-orders for the Priv in the United States. First noted by Droid-Life, the pre-orders will begin shipping on November 16th, 10 days later than pre-orders in the UK will ship.
