Ever since the launch of the Blackberry Z10 there has been a lot of speculation about the phone. This is the first Blackberry device with the Blackberry 10 operating system. The research is in motion. It has been reported that one million blackberry z10 handsets have been shipped in the fourth quarter of the year.
A lot was expected from this phone but it was not looking very bright until now. With one million handsets shipped it looks more promising. Had the sales been less than this it would be really disappointing for the company. But with a million sales the future looks bright and promising for the phone.
Blackberry said that the company had sold over six million handsets. This was released as information when the company released its annual sales record last week. The company is proud of the production of the phone.
Revenue of the company fell in the last quarter. Though the company earned a profit of over $2.7million it was near 36 per cent less compared to the same quarter in the previous year. The net income of the company was close to $94 million but the loss was a huge amount of $118 million.
In the previous quarter the company had nearly 79 million followers and in the recently ended quarter the number of followers has fallen to 66 million. The first shipment of the Blackberry Z10 shows signs of promises.
Blackberry has been trying to make a way back into the mobile phone market. Its smart phone segment has not been as successful compared to the others. The first shipment is only a beginning for many more good things to happen.
The results till now should not be the basis of the final verdict as the phone was not on sale for the entire quarter and the phone was launched in USA only a week ago. So there can be a lot more profits in favour of the company. The phone is now on sale in every leading market. There are a lot of expectations from this phone.
The mobile software research chief said that the Z10 is only the beginning of the products to be launched in 2013. There are a lot of products that are waiting to be launched this year as Blackberry promises to take the world by storm.
Though the Z10 was launched earlier the phone was not on sale on major markets. Even if it was on sale at some markets the phone was not easily available. Due to availability issues the company suffered a lot of loss.
The Q10 that has the traditional keyboard and the Blackberry 10 OS is another phone that has been held back from sales. The Z10 is now on sale in the markets for the people to enjoy this class product that is a mixture of art and expertise. The price may be a little high but that is nothing when it is compared to the style statement you get from Blackberry.
