Was chatting with a few retailers when xmas shopping.....all said head office have orders in for the B10 on release.....and this is just for North America......One individual said to me this is the Michael Jackson Phone.....this phone is going to surpass sales of Michael Jackson Alblum..."Thriller"...which is the highest sale volume record in history.,,,LOL
It appears that Rim may recapture #1 in smartphone....when reviewing so much confidence from the retail giants.....never thought it could surpass the $200 per share...with the anticipated stampede to buy this phone on release...ya never know.
given that your quarterly units shipped is sitting at 7 million (down 50% YoY, mind you), "thousands" isn't saying much.
oh, and longs need a approach. the anecdotal "i talked with a few retailers myself" pump has been moot for some time now.
I'm long but realistic. Only Rogers in Canada is taking pre-orders now. Longs are going to need to see 3 million units sold there next year, and multiples of that the U.S. I like you Joe, but I think it'll happen. Canada is Rimmtard Nation. Zero loyalty in the U.S. The product has to be great to sell there and I think it is. I want to see 1 million in Canada and 3 mil in the U.S. announced by early March or I'm out. Any numbers now are premature to judge, but do give a sentiment or indication.
Now you are back using Dogeater once again Joelew111...LOL....typical yank who thinks the USA is the only conceivable country to buy anything in volume before it is declared an success...Thousands as per say above...represents only the province of Ontario (a province is same as what a yank calls a state...and is geographically located directly north of the New York State)....Rim needs the US like a gay guy like you who needs Aids.
You really should get out of the basement once in awhile or out of the trailer park....and get involved with more social activities....there is more to life then being on this board 20 hrs per day with numerous alias names.
