In a market filled with iOS and Android devices, we’re sure many are wondering about the fate of companies such as Blackberry who not only manufacture their own devices, but the software as well. As it stands we’re sure even the more ardent Blackberry fan will admit that Blackberry’s market share is only a fraction of iOS and Android, but we guess despite many who seem to think that Blackberry is headed towards failure, here’s a piece of good news. According to a report from Seeking Alpha, it has been suggested that Blackberry 10 sales are a lot better than Blackberry themselves have expected, to the extent where the Canadian company has increased the purchase of components to meet this unexpected demand.
It would seem that while in the US, Blackberry’s market share might not be the most impressive, the report is saying that sales in regions such as Indonesia and the Middle East are healthy, along with other emerging markets. This isn’t too surprising for Indonesia as the country is well-known for their love of Blackberry devices as evidenced in 2011 when the Bold 9790 went on sale, leading to chaos ensuing due to everyone rushing to get their hands on the device.
