  • WSJ: BlackBerry Q10 Sales Have Been Dismal


    A new report published yesterday by the Wall Street Journal
    has revealed something we really didn't want to hear: BlackBerry's Q10 hasn't been selling as well as we hoped. While this has been pretty obvious in the U.S., certain reports were making it sound like the trend was being reversed. Recently, Univision put in an order for 2,000 Q10s, and many other companies were following along.

    It seems the same enthusiasm hasn't manifested itself in the consumer space though. The lack of sales has reportedly also plagued BlackBerry outside of the 50 states, and worse, even into its own home country of Canada.

    An anonymous exec at a Canadian carrier suggested an even bleaker outlook to the WSJ, "I think we'd all say that the Q10, the one we all thought was going to be the savior, just hit the ground and died." Ouch.

    The Journal also cites Chris Jourdan, owner of 16 Wireless Zone stores in the Midwestern U.S., that sells Verizon Wireless products. who was quoted as saying, "We saw virtually no demand for the Q10 and eventually returned most to our equipment vendor." Double ouch.

    Since BlackBerry hasn't responded to anyone's request for comment (they won't), we don't know how accurate this report is, and we actually won't know what the real sales/shipping numbers are until September 27th when BlackBerry announces their quarterly earnings report.
