BB10 launching in its traditional strongholds like Canada and the U.K. Is smart. That's a great strategy and it's paying off for BlackBerry. Launch in your strongholds, get strong sales and good buzz because of it, then go into weaker areas guns blazing, with a good amount of sales in your war chest. Yes, Nokia did launch in areas where they were presumably weakest first, and get some sales out of it. But had they launched in their strongholds first(the very few they have left)they would have gotten even more sales. And please know that Asia, the UAE, the Phillipines, and Africa(especially africa)are where BlackBerry has a HUGE following. India too. They will get GREAT sales in those areas. There is no absurdity in this comparison whatsoever. They are comparing the sales of a product belonging to a company that launched with a totally new OS(Nokia) vs a company that basically did the same thing(BlackBerry).
