Anyone know how many backgrounds are going to be in the PHB? Or what some of the non-basic backgrounds are?

Can't say for certain, but I recall the last play test packet had around a dozen. They included things like artisan, bounty hunter, commoner, knight, merchant, and noble.

Well the hermit backgrounder was recently confirmed in this tweet by wizards https://twitter.com/Wizards_DnD/status/490208854211186688. In addition, one of the human fighter pregens in the starter set had the Noble backgrounder which I don't believe is in the basic PDF.
