Record breaking sales for BlackBerry.

BlackBerry’s new Z10 handset is being watched by the whole industry too see whether the much troubled firm can rise to it’s former glory days. To that end the new Z10 comes with a whole lot of promise and indeed in our own review we found it to be quite a capable and competitive modern smartphone.

While we don’t have actual numbers, BlackBerry’s CEO Thorsten Heins told Phonearena, “In Canada, yesterday was the best day ever for the first day of a launch of a new BlackBerry smartphone. In fact, it was more than 50 percent better than any other launch day in our history in Canada. In the UK, we have seen close to three times our best performance ever for the first week of sales for a BlackBerry smartphone.”

The BlackBerry Z`0 officially launches today in UAE available from all major retail stores for AED 2,599 or with du and Etisalat on contract.


From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
