BlackBerry’s Q10 smartphone was supposed to bring the old days of BlackBerry’s physical keyboard into today’s touchscreen-obsessed world. But according to a new report, few people actually cared.
The BlackBerry Q10 has experienced abysmal sales since its time on store shelves, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday, citing people who claim to have knowledge of its plans. One phone retailer, who sells handsets in the midwest across 16 stores, told the Journal that he “saw virtually no demand for the Q10,” adding that the few he sold across his locations were eventually returned by customers. Nearly all of his stock was returned to his equipment vendor, according to the Journal.
