While the BlackBerry Q10 was noted as outselling the Galaxy S4 in the UK, it looks like others areas may be having similar sales. According to Seeking Alpha, the BlackBerry Q10 is topping the charts in France as well, despite having been available for just two weeks,
SFR, a French telecom company that has over 21 million customers, ranks best-selling devices on their website (unlike Free and Orange). So as SFR sells the Q10, iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4 it makes for a great start for comparisons.
When listing the best-selling mobile devices on SFR's site, the BlackBerry Q10 takes in the number one spot - sitting above both the Galaxy S4 and HTC One, and far beyond the iPhone 5. While this could be attributed by some to the early-adopter rush, the device has been available for a few weeks now so that is fairly unlikely at this point.
It's good to note as well that the BlackBerry Z10 is also selling well at SFR being ahead of the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3.
So it looks like the Q10 is starting out strong so far with better than expected sales in the UK, Canada and France. The US launch is right around the corner (T-Mobile just one week from today) so we'll see how well the Q10 fairs on US soil very soon.
