While BlackBerry, formerly called Research In Motion, already released the revolutionary Z10 a couple of months ago, the industry has yet to witness the BlackBerry maker's greatest creation - the keyboard-touting Q10.
High-end department store chain Selfridges in U.K. claims to have been able to sell 2,000 BlackBerry Q10 handsets in just 90 minutes. Technically, that's around 22 phones a minute! Selfridges was so happy it labeld the Q10 the "fastest-ever selling consumer electronics product." Selfridges, by the way, is the only company lucky enough to begin selling the device at £579.99 (tax included).
Meanwhile, BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins believes that the Q10 will sell "tens of millions." "We have very, very good first signs already after the launch in the U.K.," says Heins. "This is going into the installed base of more than 70 million BlackBerry users so we have quite some expectations. We expect several tens of million of units."
