Oh no RIM, what are you doing with yourself? Due to slow production, the sales expectations of the new BlackBerry Z10 currently go back to just under 83 percent.
Lahore, Pakistan -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/04/2013 -- A number that is likely to be particularly shocking for the German CEO. But the fierce competition makes the Canadian company and more difficult to get a foothold again.
BlackBerry Z10 is expected to sell worse than first expected
Analyst T. Michael Walkley of Canaccord Genuity said that RIM will be able to sell gut1.75 million BlackBerry Z10 - alone in the February quarter. However, after it in the UK and Canada also showed a very slow launch with outstanding delivery bottlenecks, his expectations shrank to 300,000 devices. An absolute horror scenario for the smartphone maker.
"Our global surveys post the recent BlackBerry Z10 (New operating System BB10) launch indicated mixed initial sales with limited initial supply cited as the reason for early post-launch stock-outs at some carrier stores rather than overwhelming demand,"
Also in the future, this should not really improve how Walkley said. In the U.S., the BlackBerry are displaced Z10 mainly from the competition, which is better positioned there. The major mobile providers seem to have no interest in BlackBerry.
RIM's future with BlackBerry looks rather bad
"We believe carrier support for BlackBerry 10th in the U.S. is modest, as demonstrated by Sprint only planning to launch the Q10 and T-Mobile the only Z10 Further, we anticipate carriers will not build large inventory levels for BB10, consistent with prior BB7 launches high-end, and will stock Initially modest levels given the weaker consumer demand for high-end BlackBerry smartphones. "
Because of the relatively poor prognosis only currently back the calls for a sale of the company to be loud. The licensing of BlackBerry 10 seems once again to be very likely. How exactly it goes, must, however, show only, for the quarter is still not over and is billed at the end.
