Blackberry Motion is available - you buying?

So, having just returned from a quick trip to Toronto I was very surprised to see that there was still plenty of folks walking around with their Blackberries in hand.

Plus, I saw a lot of advertising by Blackberry showcasing their new Blackberry Motion.  The first water-resistant phone by the company.  Pretty good news as Toronto was starting to get some rain (while we're getting snow up in the north).
Well, now the phone is out and available?  You grabbing one?  $600 can buy you:

  • 5.5" FullHD (1920x1080)
  • Snapdragon 625 2.0GHz x8
  • 4GB RAM

  • 4000mAh + QuickCharge 3.0
