BlackBerry 7 phones outselling BlackBerry 10 phones
Numbers aside, this is easily the thing I enjoyed reading the least in today's BlackBerry earnings announcement...
During the third quarter, the Company recognized hardware revenue on approximately 1.9 million BlackBerry smartphones compared to approximately 3.7 million BlackBerry smartphones in the previous quarter. Most of the units recognized were BlackBerry 7 devices. During the quarter, approximately 4.3 million BlackBerry smartphones were sold through to end customers, which included shipments made and recognized prior to the third quarter and which reduced the Company's inventory in channel. Of the BlackBerry smartphones sold through to end customers in the third quarter, approximately 3.2 million were BlackBerry 7 devices.
Clearly, the company has work to do on all fronts to get BlackBerry 10 phones into the hands of more smartphone users.
