RBC analyst Mark Sue expects BlackBerry to sell 14 million BlackBerry 10 devices in 2013. This is an increase in the firm's previous predictions for BlackBerry sales. In addition to increasing their forecast for this year, RBC has also boosted their estimates for Q1 2014 to 3.5 million from 2.75 million.




While these sales numbers pale in comparison to the latest Galaxy or iPhone, it does show that the device is doing alright. Sue expects BlackBerry to be able to reach "near-term profitability." BlackBerry still has just around 3 percent of the market, but it could be making a successful turnaround, something not all companies are capable of doing.
