Though the BlackBerry Z10 has yet to be released here in the US, it has already hit stores over in the UK and, according to at least one analyst, it’s doing quite well.
Jeffries analyst Peter Misek told Forbes that early sales of the Z10 are off to a “strong start,” with many stores around the UK reportedly selling out of the white version of the handset and carrying only a limited supply of the black version. BlackBerry 10 phones are set to debut in Canada next week, and Misek said that pre-orders are also off to “a solid start” there as well as the UAE.
Misek estimated that the sell-in of the Z10 so far is “at least several hundred thousand units.”
How BlackBerry 10 devices will fare in the US remains to be seen; the Z10 will ship here in March, while the keyboard-equipped Q10, which is currently not available anywhere, is slated for an April release.
