CEO of BlackBerry Expecting "Tens of Millions" of Q10 Unit Sales
Blackberry CEO Thorsten Heins recently claims that the company expects to sell ‘tens of millions’ of its new device, the Q10. According to Heins, the trend is likely to continue as the company shifts and prepares to tap into an installed user base.
The Q10 is the first major smartphone in recent memory to have a physical keyboard and has been praised by reviewers for its keyboard and respectable battery life. The new device officially went on sale in the UK on Monday, and the sales performance appears to be high and successful. The successful launch led to an almost 4% stock price spike in New York, with shares at $15.61; the highest since March 21.
Heins spoke with Bloomberg Television in Los Angeles during the Milken Institute conference- during the interview he stated:
We have very, very good first signs already after the launch in the UK. This is going into the installed base of more than 70 million BlackBerry users so we have quite some expectations. We expect several tens of million of units.

No they will never reclaim the throne but they can still make billions of dollars. Who says you have to always be on top ?

Think they have there expectations set to high LOL. Too late in the game and especially with all the government agencies dropping BB like a habit to iDevices. Goodluck!!

Definitely want to know what crack he's smoking. Tens of millions? Likely not unless they start giving them away as a free device at carriers. BB is irrelevant in the market, even after BB10.

They can sell as many as they want. What really matters is how many returns are they going to have? Will they have the same 50% return rate as the Z10?

Is this the same guy that said tablets won't exist in 5 years and that he expects Blackberr to be a leader in mobile?

He must be high. Or drunk. Or both.

He's Irrelevant, the fact that he's Blind to it makes it laughable, BB is a Good Phone but not as good as Apple or Samsung. He's trying to walk tall & carry a Small Stick.
