According to channel checks conducted by Jefferies & Co, preorders in the United Arab Emirates and Canada have so far been "solid."
Also good news, are early reports from the UK that show Z10 sales are off to a great start. Jefferies analyst, Peter Misek, has reported that there have been lines of people outside a number of UK retail stores selling the smartphones. Also notable, sell-outs of the white Z10 have been rampent.
"We believe Carphone Warehouse is seeing widespread sell-outs, while O2, Vodafone, Orange and EE are seeing robust demand,” Misek explained. “We estimate sell-in to be at least several hundred thousand units."
If Misek's estimates are true, we could see 5 times that number in the US market once it becomes available come mid March.
