BlackBerry Sees Strong Demand In Canada
It looks like BlackBerry has hit a home run in their home country. The CBC is reporting that they got a strong turnout on the first days of sales in Canada:
While there weren’t the long lineups typical of an Apple launch, both Rogers and Bell reported strong demand for the phone, with 50 per cent of pre-orders coming from non-BlackBerry users, according to independent technology analyst Chris Umiastowski.
“We’re hearing that pre-order sales have exceeded iPhone sales for the last three months,” Umiastowski told CBC News.
So. Does that mean that BlackBerry is back? Let’s see what sales are like in the USA before we declare them to be back in the game.
