Q10 Outselling Galaxy S4 at UK’s Biggest Retailer

Q10 Outselling Galaxy S4 at UK’s Biggest Retailer

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?

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.
