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.
