This is bad news for Apple! This explains why the stock went down...
Wrong. 1 million Z10s DELIVERED, not sold; big difference. It's called "channel stuffing", a sort of back-handed tactic to make end user demand look good and create media buzz. Only Apple reports actual sales to end users.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
You're exactly right. Delivered inventory is not Sold units. The carriers probably have return return to vendor privleges as well back to BBRY.
True, this number is total sham. BBRY is not a treat or competition to AAPL!.
Do not believe Apple only reports sales to end users. They cannot know that outside of their own sales. They are not in the bookseller business where stores essentially have product on consignment
