How the Z10's figures stack up against Android devices or iPhone launch numbers is not particularly relevant now, the fact that people went out and bought the Z10 in (BB)record numbers is good to see for the brand. BIS will probably be a deal breaker for me on the Z10 but I'm happy with my current BB and PB for now and as long as I have BIS I don't see myself leaving the brand.

I expect that bb10 will have a solid 3rd place this year behind android and iOS.WP will likely die and let's see what android key lime pie will bring,it will determine a lot in android's future.

Maybe people should see this statment in a different way. When Blackberry were at the height of their power they sold a very high number of phones so if the CEO says that the sales figures are the best that Blackberry has ever done on there first day of sales in the UK and they were very popular i am happy for them.

I new owned a Blackberry in my life but i think BB10 looks like interesting personally i just want them to kick Microsoft in the Ass.

Dont know if it's going to break numbers with its competitors but it's surely going to change the furtune for Blackberry itself. Company was very close to be nothing and this was announced.

It is hoped that RIM's focus on devices doesn't take it its focus away from its excellent and secure system for transmitting data which is a key reason for many opting for this device
