BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 Shipments Maintaining at 1 Million Units Per Month, says Supply Sources

BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 Shipments Maintaining at 1 Million Units Per Month, says Supply Sources

New reports claim that BlackBerry’s order visibility has extended 2 to 3 more quarters. This comes as BlackBerry intends to release 3 or 4 new devices in second half of 2013, according to sources in BlackBerry’s supply chain in Taiwan.

“BlackBerry’s first entry-level BlackBerry 10 model, the BlackBerry Q5, is expected to be launched in July, targeting the entry-level segment in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East and Latin America,” says sources close to the matter.

Additionally, sources claim the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 have maintained shipments of 1 million units per month. This volume is certainly helping BlackBerry maintain marketshare.

“The launch of BlackBerry Q5, which will come with a 3.1-inch touchscreen, dual-core processor and a QWERTY keyboard, will further ramp up shipment momentum for BlackBerry,” claim the sources.

With the rising shipment volumes at BlackBerry, major ODM and component suppliers in Taiwan, such as Wistron, Silitech Technology and Ichia Technologies look to benefit the sources have indicated.

“Wistron reportedly has landed orders for two entry-level models from BlackBerry, said the sources, adding that the ODM is expected to snap up 60% of smartphone orders to be released by BlackBerry in 2013,” said sources.

It will certainly be interesting to learn the shipment figures at the upcoming Q1 earnings on June 28th. One analyst has speculated that BlackBerry has shipped more than 5 Million BlackBerry 10 devices for the quarter.

This colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus virion. See PHIL 1832 for a black and white version of this image.

Where is Ebola virus found in nature?The exact origin, locations, and natural habitat (known as the "natural reservoir") of Ebola virus remain unknown. However, on the basis of available evidence and the nature of similar viruses, researchers believe that the virus is zoonotic (animal-borne) and is normally maintained in an animal host that is native to the African continent. A similar host is probably associated with Ebola-Reston which was isolated from infected cynomolgous monkeys that were imported to the United States and Italy from the Philippines. The virus is not known to be native to other continents, such as North America.
