BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins says that the launch of the BlackBerry Z10 in Europe was strong and was also strong in India where product that the CEO thought would take five days to sell through actually took all of two days leaving stores sold out of the new BlackBerry 10 model; at least one analyst disagrees and has cut his projection on Z10 sales...

i think 1 to 2M BB Z10 shipped is respectable especially that its just a new platform..just like the lumia 920...

its realyl time to break the duopoly!!! i love competition and choices!!!

Well.. The Indian BB CEO was very happy with the sales for the first week.. but jumped ship as soon as he could and has quit to join another firm... Says alot about the confidence BB Top Brass has in the product..

Im ashsmed to say im going to take the analysts side...fine that in india there are high sales but in europe i have not heard of 1 person having the device and when i went to check one out in store the were Z10 sale signs everywhere and it was priced around the same as a s3... i know which one i would choose! The fact bb have pinned there hopes on this one touchscreen device which wasnt even how they made there money in the first place is sad..long live WP8

I wonder if Mr. Faucette bought the Storm 1 & is still bitter. What a joke
