Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley is making a drastic cut to his estimates of Q1 shipments of the new BlackBerry Z10 from 1.75 million units to just 300,000; while the device is not yet available in the U.S.,the analyst says that the stateside launch of the phone will not make much of a difference as he expects U.S. carriers to have small amounts of the phone in stock...

Whoever predicted 1.7 was on the Blackberry payroll. It's all about stock manipulation.

The screwed up launching with a iPhone copy and trying to compete with iPhone, Android, WP, etc.. instaead of launching the new Blackberry with a BLACKBERRY. The Q10 should have been first. This could be the death of them, they need to go ahead and sell themselves to MS or Nokia, otherwise they are the next Palm. Hmm.. that said, I guess Dell could fall on its face like HP and buy BB and give it away after blowing a few billion dollars.

Lol not surprised at all, I knew all the sellouts where done on purpose by rim to try to get some hype. This phone was already outdated when it was introduced, microsoft & RIM fanboys can brag as much as they want about how "smooth" the OS is, but it doesn't matter if you can't do what you want with your phone.

I want RIM to succeed to drive competition, but 4 smartphone OS really seem like too much. Smartphones are hitting their plateau hardware, it's really software that will make or break you.

These analysts put out this BS purely for stock manipulation, and the public eats it up. These bogus reports, for instance, that the BlackBerry Z10 is not selling well in the UK has already been proven false by others. The only way we will know for sure how well Z10 is doing is when official numbers get released at the end of Q1. Until then, this is all speculation.
