Solid sales in UK for new BlackBerry Z10 handset
Tuesday 05 February 2013
The new BlackBerry Z10 handset which was released in the UK last week is proving popular..
Early anecdotal reports suggests that the BlackBerry company(formerly Research in Motion), is seeing strong demand for the Z10, its latest model of smartphone.
Forbes have reported that "store checks suggest that initial sales of the BlackBerry Z10 are off to a solid, if not healthy start in the U.K", while John Paczkowski of allthingsd.com contacted a market analyst; Peter Misek of Jefferies & Co., who said:"Carphone Warehouse is seeing widespread sell-outs, while O2, Vodafone, Orange and EE are seeing robust demand.”
"If Z10 sees demand similar to that of the U.K. when it debuts in the U.S. in March, BlackBerry may have a chance to regain some of the traction it has spent the past five years losing" writes Paczkowski.
