Rogers Confirms That Tuesday BlackBerry Z10 Sales Broke Records


We had Thorsten Heins go on record yesterday about the launch day sales of BlackBerry 10. Now Rogers has confirmed those numbers even on their own network saying that it was the most successful BlackBerry launch ever. This is coming from Rogers that was the first carrier to launch BlackBerry in 1999. Here is what they sent out:

  • Sold more BlackBerry smartphones on February 5th 2013 than any other day in Rogers history (Rogers was the first carrier to launch BlackBerry services in 1999).
  • Rogers BlackBerry experts activated thousands of BlackBerry Z10 smartphones yesterday, and provided customers with in depth training and support.
  • Some stores have temporarily sold out of the BlackBerry Z10 and additional inventory has been shipped to Rogers retail locations across Canada.

That is impressive considering that Rogers has sold BlackBerrys even when BlackBerry dominated the smartphone market.

  1. Fresh from the Analysts:

    Rogers Communications (may or maybe be the correct Corp name, but who cares) forces all employees and their families to buy BB.

    BB bribed Rogers to lie about sales.

    Rogers never really had the devices, just boxes

    Rogers employees gave the phone away and dummy-ed the invoices in the system.

    All the customers are “straw purchases” for burners to be used by criminals.

    Rogers claims it though inventory it bought (all eight units) were free demos and refuses to pay BB

    Who the hell is Rogers, anyway?

    • Is this true or a satire / spoof?

      • Tongue was firmly planted in cheek.

        • Do you realize someone is going to read your post and take it as Gospel and spread it all over the internet? They won’t stop to read a reply and may have no clue as to what tongue in cheek means. Sarcasm does NOT translate well on the internet. Perhaps you should delete the post or think twice next time.

          • That happened to me re: Chuck Hagel requiring soldiers to pay to enter the gates to work. I shared it on FB . A former soldier buddy of his told me it was a spoof. I quicly removed my post.
