BlackBerry launched their new BlackBerry 10 OS and BlackBerry Z10 smartphone last week in the UK and early sales appear to be promising. All Things D and Jeffries and Co. report the handset is selling very well in the U.K, with some stores even selling out of BlackBerry Z10 inventory already. BlackBerry is hoping the good sales in the U.K. will be a sign of strong upcoming sales in other countries.
Currently BlackBerry handsets are very popular in the teen demographic in the U.K., something they are yet to capture in other countries. This is a big change from their usual “business” audience.
We will have to wait and see how the rest of the world responds to the BB10 and Z10. What do you think of the handset? Would you pick one up?[ source ]
