BlackBerry 10 still going strong, expected to ship 14 million devices this year

BlackBerry 10 Device Shipments

BlackBerry 10 devices may not be selling like iPhones or Samsung Galaxy phones, but BlackBerry nonetheless has to be pleased that it’s beaten many analysts’ expectations for device shipments so far. The Financial Post points us to new research from RBC analyst Mark Sue, who now projects that BlackBerry will ship 14 million BlackBerry 10 devices this year, up from his earlier projection of 11 million units. Sue also sees BlackBerry 10 performing above expectations in early 2014 and he now believes that BlackBerry will ship 3.5 million BlackBerry 10 devices in the first quarter of 2014, up from his earlier projection of 2.75 million units. Sue recently said that BlackBerry 10 sales are strongest so far in Canada, the United Kingdom and the Middle East even as sales in the United States have remained middling.
