It looks like the launch of BlackBerry’s first BlackBerry 10 smartphone is off to a good start, yesterday we heard that sales of the BlackBerry Z10 had been good in the UK and now BlackBerry has announced that sales of the device have exceeded their expectations.
Whilst BlackBerry did not release any details on how many of their Z10 smartphone they have sold since launch, the company’s UK MD Stephen Bates had the following to say about the device.
“The response we’ve seen exceeded all of our launch partners’ expectations. Customers are choosing to buy the BlackBerry Z10 in large numbers,” said Bates. “In fact some of our partners have told us that they sold out over the weekend in some of their key retail locations.
“The partners’ call centres are also flooded with calls, as people phone to ask for more information about the device, and also where and how to buy it.”
The BlackBerry Z10 launched in the UK last week, it will launch in Canada today and also in a number of European countries this week which include France, Germany, Spain and more.
