    BB trying to copy the Lumia920 strategy

    Report from an UK store analyst:

    "limited initial supply was cited as the reason for early post-launch stock- outs at some carrier stores versus overwhelming demand. In fact, our surveys indicated most stores received less than 15 units and sold a majority of these units over a two- to three-day period, leading to initial stock-outs at a few stores and low inventory levels at others. Our surveys revealed that while most sales representatives acknowledged the Z10 was a marked improvement versus older BB 7 devices, initial sales were driven by pent-up demand from loyal BlackBerry users. Store managers also suggested the new BB10 platform only closes the gap with more mature OS ecosystems such as Android and iOS, and a number of store representatives recommended competing high-end smartphones such as the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III over the Z10."

    So be careful if you consider to go into BBY
