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.
Demand has been extremely high, and it’s encouraging to see this level of excitement and momentum around our BlackBerry smartphone launch. We understand customers are facing issues with stock outs when trying to purchase their KEYone.
However, TCL is now working with all retailers selling the BlackBerry KEYone to replenish stocks as soon as possible in both markets.
We’re working closely with our retail partners, ensuring additional stock is available ASAP so they can fulfill customer orders.
