Analyst says BlackBerry Q10 sales are strong in Canada and in the U.K
strong Q10 sales. And BlackBerry is beginning to win back the corporations that for years made the OEM's handset one of the tools that pinstriped warriors had to have. Last week, Clifford Chance, a global law firm, said that 1,600 BlackBerry handsets would be given to employees. Early last month, General Tire said that it would arm its corporate employees with a new BlackBerry 10 phone.
The latest battle for smartphone supremacy has shifted to the Pentagon where the BlackBerry Q10, BlackBerry Z10, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Apple iPhone 5 have all received, or about to receive, security clearance from the Department of Defense.

they are coming back strong!! its just that they really need to concentrate on market that they are strong! its good to see that they are strong in UK and canada, but theyt shouldn't forget africa and asia where they are still strong! while they need to make a comeback on US but they need to be on the eye-level of the americans!

Blackberry is nothing but a failure. They will continue to fail and without US customers they will close. There is nobody lining up to purchase this worthless phone

Most loyal blackberry users prefer the Q10 over the Z10. Blackberry still have a lot to learn when it comes to touchscreen phone design.

you're right about most BB user will prefer Q10, but again the market trend right now is tough screen so they shouldn't let go on that!
what do you mean "still have a lot to learn when it comes to touchscreen phone design."? you must be kidding right? only here in PA prefer s3's plasticly plastic design other prefer it better coz you dont feel that plastic or cheap like in s3 and also people dont think that you can remove the battery door coz it looks like it is unibody phone! they make gorgeous phones IMO but also FYI!

I wonder about the sales mix, Q10 vs Z10. I still believe that BB adherents are skewed far more towards using a QWERTY keyboard, rather than a virtual one. I doubt that it's 1-to-1, but I expect that's it's far higher than Android's >0.01-to-1 (my wild guess) and Window's Phone or iOS's 0-to-1.

ofcourse Q10 will be higher than Z10 coz i believe Z10's aim are those iPhone/Android or even WP users since its currently the trend -touchscreen. while Q10 are oviously BB users and those who love to have physical keyboard!

One thing is for sure, not only the smartphones get smarter, but people who sells them too.

They never release numbers because they are a failure. Close the doors already
