TCL's president confirms extremely high demand for BlackBerry KEYone on launch day

TCL's BlackBerry KEYone was officially launched in North America earlier today, and judging by the statement offered by the company's president, it looks like there's demand has been high for the smartphone in both countries.

According to Steve Cistulli, President and GM of TCL Communication North America, May 31 was an excellent day for the launch of BlackBerry KEYone, as the smartphone has been met with warm reception by customers in the region.

Moreover, TCL's official confirmed that it now faces issues with stocks as many clients who pre-ordered the BlackBerry KEYone won't be getting it for a while. The same goes for those who are trying to purchase the smartphone on launch day.

However, TCL is now working with all retailers selling the BlackBerry KEYone to replenish stocks as soon as possible in both markets.
