BlackBerry Q10 is the fastest selling consumer electronics product ever at U.K. retailer Selfridges
Selfridges said that it sold thousands of units of the phone per hour, mostly to corporations that sucked up the handset at such a rate that the company had sold out of its initial stock within the first two hours that it was on sale. New inventory was sent every hour to replenish the store's shelves. Selfbridges called the BlackBerry Q10 its fastest selling consumer electronics product ever.
that a sellout for the BlackBerry Z10 was all but assured.
But this time, things are different. With eye-witness reports watching as 2,200 Q10 units sold in the first 90 minutes after being launched, it looks like there is quite a bit of pent up demand for a BlackBerry 10 model equipped with the well regarded BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard. We wouldn't be surprised to see the same heavy demand for the phone in the U.S.
