Demand for BlackBerry 10 strong... in Canada
posted by Michael H. / Jan 10, 2013, 11:22 AM
Rogers, the largest mobile carrier in Canada, has been taking reservations for BlackBerry 10 since mid-December. Rogers won't release any official numbers for the reservations, but it did tell BGR that they "can say that customer interest is definitely strong and reservations continue daily."
Of course, that doesn't have any real meaning, because there are no real numbers and of course Canadians are a bit more attached to their BlackBerries than Americans are. As of August 2012, BlackBerry still held 27% of the Canadian smartphone market, behind Android at 36% and the iPhone at 29%. So, the market makeup is quite different, and it's much harder to say that strong demand from Canada translates across the border.

I think RIM is going to surprise a lot of people and I know that even though they have been losing subscribers, most would be willing to come back for bb10. I think RIM will become a solid #3 OS, maybe not as strong as they were before android and IOS passed them but strong enough for what they want.
