Rogers confirms record-breaking BlackBerry Z10 launch
Nevertheless, it appears that we've been told the truth, as the Canadian carrier Rogers has now issued a statement, which confirms what was previously said by CEO Thorsten Heins. According to Rogers, which was the first carrier to offer BlackBerry in 1999, the Z10's launch was indeed the most successful BlackBerry launch ever. In some stores, Rogers has even sold out of Z10 units, so new stock had to be ordered.
Once again, though, we don't get to see any official numbers, other than the mention that Rogers activated "thousands" of BlackBerry Z10 smartphones on launch day, which doesn't sound like such an extraordinary achievement.

z10 is perfect except the battery life even has flash which android 4.1 doesnt support :)

Android 4.1 supports Flash, you just have to install the .apk

The point is android no longer support flash officially

You line up to buy Apple products don't you? Even if you buy them second hand, you're still lining up to buy one and use it.
The BB Z10 is going to be my next phone. I'm done with Windows Phone.

i have a lumia 920. htc m7 will be my next phone. i want a 1080p screen but dont want 5 inches. so the m7 is perfect. i just hope the camera lives up to its "ultrapixel" billing.

I thing HTC's designs are great. Much better than Samsung for sure. I prefer the Super LCD3 over the AMOLED HD screens as well. People will hate on me for that.
I already have a Nexus 7, and havent decided if I want another Android device at the same time.

I don't hate, I agree with this! I also don't like OLED based displays, because at the moment they have more disadvantages than advantages.

I won't be surprised if after a while they will also confirm record-breaking disappointment (only my opinion).

Even if the Z10 sells way more than any other Blackberry before it, I would say that's a rather dubious honor at best. The smartphone market is many times larger than it was in heyday of the Blackberry, so it should break those previous records. We'll have to wait & see how these numbers actually stack up against today's giants.
