This order marks the largest ever single purchase order in BlackBerry’s history, but we don't know much about it. BlackBerry has said that the smartphones will begin shipping to the partner today, but we don't know if the order is for just the BlackBerry Z10, or if the order includes future releases like the Q10. BlackBerry goes on to say in the announcement that those who have been using the Z10 have given "hugely positive feedback".
The news of the large purchase led to the second big jump in BlackBerry stock in as many days. BlackBerry's shares gained over 8% in afternoon trading to finish the day at $15.65.
