BlackBerry Partner Orders One Million BlackBerry 10 Smartphones

The tech equivalent of super-sizing your smartphone order, BlackBerry confirmed with understandable exuberance on Wednesday that one of its partners has placed a monumentally large order for new BlackBerry 10 smartphones.

Without revealing the identity of the partner, BlackBerry confirmed that the big buyer is on the line for one million BlackBerry 10 devices.

“An order for one million devices is a tremendous vote of confidence in BlackBerry 10,” says Rick Costanzo, EVP Global Sales for BlackBerry. “Consumers are ready for a new user experience, and BlackBerry 10 delivers. With strong partner support, coupled with this truly re-invented new platform, we have a powerful recipe for success.”

BlackBerry unveiled the new BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 smartphones on January 30th.

As of this writing, the BlackBerry Z10 is now available for purchase in a number of markets around the world and will be available in the United States starting before the end of March.
