Q10 Outselling Galaxy S4 at UK’s Biggest Retailer

by - -

A recent report claimed that sales of the BlackBerry Q10 were below those of the Z10 when it first arrived, and the folks over at Seeking Alpha decided to take matters into their own hands. Ends up that the Q10 is not only selling spectacularly, but it’s actually out performing the Galaxy S4 in UK’s largest mobile phone retailer.

Michael Collins at Seeking Alpha did his own research and checked in with about 15 stores and came up with surprisingly different results. They all pretty much agreed that the Q10 was selling a considerable amount more than the Z10. “There are two BlackBerry buyers: iPhoners for the past two years who go for the Z10 and BlackBerry bold 9900 types who go for the Q10,” one retailer told him.

He then took things a step further and checked the resales of the Q10 on eBay. His results were that from the period of May 11-12, the Q10 sold 72 units. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S4 sold 140 units in 14 days, or an average of 10 per day. The Q10s were also selling for a higher price than the S4.

Seems to me like this is another example of BlackBerry naysayers finding a reason to heap the hate on any way they can. What are your thoughts?

Chris Esparza has been a member of #TeamBlackBerry since 2008 when he walked in to a T-Mobile store ready to buy a new phone after his old Samsung suffered some water damage. He had his eyes on another Samsung, but unfortunately, it was out of his budget. He went with the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 instead, because it was the cheaper option. It's probably the best impulse buy he has ever made, as BlackBerry changed his outlook on all things tech related and ignited a strong passion for the mobile industry. Since that 8100, he has owned only four different BlackBerry smart phones, including the Z10, which he received the day it was announced, as a perk for being a member of BlackBerry Elite. Chris loves meeting members of Team BlackBerry and will gladly add you to BBM if you request him. PIN: 2668C47E
