The BlackBerry CEO added: "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 also have Jefferies Group analyst, Peter Misek, saying that UK stores Selfridged and Carphone Warehouse selling out of the BlackBerry Q10 quickly, but couldn't back this up with any sales numbers. He has said: "Z10 sales in Canada, the US and UK remain steady with no inventory or return issues".


The BlackBerry CEO finished off by saying that the Q10 will "create a certain attraction towards BlackBerry 10, and then whatever comes up, we will entertain any valuable discussion for the company" in regards to licensing the BlackBerry 10 OS, adding: "We are still observing and watching that space and that's what we will continue to do".
