    BlackBerry Z10 Vs Apple iPhone 5: Z10 outsells iPhone in Canada | Northern Voices Online

    BY admin | March 30, 2013

    The competition is intensifying in the market across the world. BlackBerry Z10 Vs Apple iPhone 5 is becoming tough as Z10 outsells iPhone in Canada
    Eventually, as predicted by some analysts, BlackBerry Z10 has turned out as a stiff opponent to Apple iPhone 5. The flagship model of BlackBerry 10 is now raising very stiff completion to the iPhone in many markets. As per recent reports, the phone has outsold the latest iPhone in Canada, U.K. and some other markets. It is quite critical for Apple, which looks ahead to roll out the next upgrade to its flagship smartphone. Here we go through some latest sales trends of the BlackBerry Z10 and iPhone 5.
    BB Z10 Outsells iPhone 5 in Canada: In spite of the predictions that the BlackBerry 10 would be a collapse, the first device with the software has outsold iPhone by a Canada retailer, Glentel. In a statement, the major Canada retailer said that the Z10 has been the leading smartphone sold through its stores. The firm has more than 300 stores across the country.
    Earlier, some retailers in the U.K. and Canada claimed that they sold out the device in a few days after its release. But, some industry watchers are of the view that limited supply is the reason for the stock-outs of the device. While Glentel declined to share actual sales figures in its statement, the fact that the Z10 has outsold the two most popular smartphones including the Galaxy S3 as well in some areas.
    Strong Rival to iPhone: BlackBerry 10 and Z10 are two powerful products against Apple iOS and iPhone. The Z10 is not only a single device against the iPhone 5, but the entire series. The new operating system from the Canadian firm is capable to beat iPhone and its OS in several key areas. Hardware wise, the Z10 is a nicely powerful and strong machine with high quality specs and other features. It has great build quality too, and its software is providing a stunningly smoother experience for users.
    BlackBerry Z10 Vs iPhone 5 Specs Comparison:
    Specs wise, BlackBerry Z10 is undoubtedly the winner. It has a large 4.2-inch display with 768 x 1280 pixels at 355p pixel density. The processor inside the device is a 1.5GHz dual core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon, and it is supported by an Adreno 225 graphical processor and 2GB of RAM. The device comes only in 16GB model with the facility for data storage expansion through a microSD slot. Cameras of the device include an 8MP rear and 2MP front ones.
    In the meantime, Apples latest iPhone has a 4-inch Retina display, and under the cover, it features a 1.2GHz A6 dual core processor, 1GB of RAM and a PowerVR SGX 543MP3 graphical processor. It means that it is not that much competitive to the new BlackBerry device at all. However, the phone is available in three memory versions; 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. You have no option for memory expansion though.
    The Blackberry Z10 definitely puts in a solid performance, leading to a surprisingly close contest. It matches the iPhone 5 for display and camera and even tops it for battery life, memory and connectivity, writes 3G.co.uk. But, in its comparison, the site has judged iPhone 5 as winner since it is having far better build quality. In fact, it is not that fine to say that iPhone 5 is better than the Z10 provided that it has received huge initial response in markets.
    Whatever it is, BlackBerrys dream to strongly come back to the mobile market is likely to realize. Some analysts had predicted sooner death for the platform even before the release of its latest version late January. But, against their forecasts, BB 10 has surpassed the early challenge and managed to gain some momentum in global mobile market. Better to say, it has marked its presence in the market.

    We wish ... that may have happened during the launch week but I have a hard time believing that the Z10 is outselling the Iphone 5 today. At the Carphone Warehouse (UK) the Z10 is in sixth place on best sellers in the "monthly deals" category. Very decent but not outselling Iphone or Samsung.
