BlackBerry Q10 outsells the Apple iPhone 5, HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 in France
BlackBerry Z10, which was released in February by the carrier, is outselling the Sony Xperia Z, LG Optimus G and the Apple iPhone 5. Pricing could have something to do with these results. The Apple iPhone 5 has a price tag of 169 EUR ($219 USD) on contract while the BlackBerry Q10 is priced at 59.99 EUR ($78 USD) on contract. But on the other hand, the HTC One is priced at the same level as the Q10 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 is only 20 EUR ($26) more expensive.
This has to be putting a smile on the face of BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins, who hopes that the reaction to the BlackBerry Q10 in the U.S. comes close to its reception in France.
