It looks like BlackBerry fans really do love their physical keyboards. Barron’s points us to a new note from Jefferies analyst Peter Misek, who claims that several “store checks” of outlets in Toronto show that the “BlackBerry Q10 has been selling extremely well and has been sold out or seeing limited availability” in the city. Misek’s note on Canadian Q10 sales follows a similarly optimistic note he wrote earlier in the week about strong early Q10 sales in the U.K., so it seems that the Q10 has some solid momentum on its side during its first week of availability. The Q10, which is designed to look more like iconic pre-touchscreen BlackBerry phones, includes 3.5-inch display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a 2,100 mAh battery.
