BlackBerry Q10 Sales: Promising Ahead Of US Release Date
The BlackBerry Z10 has been first released a few months ago in Canada and UK, but unfortunately for the Canadian manufacturer, the smartphone apparently was not as successful as some would have expected, thus raising the stakes for the upcoming (at that time) BlackBerry Q10.
Join us after the break for the whole story.
BlackBerry Q10 Sales – It Looks Promising
If there were any doubts the BlackBerry Q10 will be a success, they have now been scattered, as apparently the smartphone is selling like hotcakes in the UK.
According to the retailer Selfridges (an outlet of Carphone Warehouse and the only place in UK where the BlackBerry Q10 was available during the past weekend), within two hours of its release, the keyboard-based handset was out of stock.
While the Canadian company refused to release the official BlackBerry Q10 sale numbers, according to Michael Collins (a former Hedge Fund manager), who was present at Selfridges, exporters were buying the device in lots of 20 units.
Some might argue that due to limited inventory, even the BlackBerry Z10 had wrongly received positive early reports regarding its UK sales. But with over 2000 BB Q10 units being sold in the first few hours of availability, this can hardly be the case with its QWERTY-ed sibling.
But how about its US launch? The BlackBerry Q10 US release date is scheduled for late-May, and since the smartphone is definitely off to a good start, we think that, most likely, it will enjoy a high demand in the States as well.
