    BBRY sells ONLY 1 million Z10s per week

    BBRY Z10 Sales Slows in the Gulf
    BBRY Z10 Sales Slows in the Gulf - Zacks.com

    I tried to ignore this report, but it kept popping up infront of me until I finally felt the need to rip it apart. So here we go.

    The Gulf Region makes up 10% of BBRYs global market share.
    BBRY launched its much-awaited BB10 operating system (OS) based device on Jan 30, 2013 and started selling the phone in the Gulf region from Feb 10, 2013.
    Saudi Arabia didn't launch the Z10 until Feb 16, 2013. Saudi Arabia makes up 70% of BBRYs market share in the Gulf Region.

    However, one of the two distributors has sold only 300,000 Z10 phones since its launch
    The way this report has such a negative feel to it, I would think the 300,000 distributer would be lower than the other distributer. For arguments sake lets say they are both the same. That is 600,000 Z10 in the first 6 weeks of the launch. That works out to 100,000 per week.

    So what do we have :
    Gulf region sells 100,000 Z10s per week
    Gulf region makes up 10% of market share
    That adds up to "only" 1 million Z10s per week globally

    That is outstanding, if only outstanding.

    There are quite a few flaws with your math (i.e. the vastly varying demand between markets, the possibility of initial demand dropping off, etc.), so I seriously doubt we're looking at a million Z10's sold every week, but this is good news nevertheless. Could put BlackBerry close to (or above) the one million units mark for the quarter.

    I have high expectations for this company, but agree with you that they won't sell 1 million Z10s per week. I was just trying to demonstrate how this is positive news, not negative news.
