    Order visibility from BlackBerry extends to 2-3 quarters, say suppliers

    Order visibility from BlackBerry has been extended to 2-3 quarters compared to a mere one quarter previously as the Canada-based smartphone vendor plans to release 3-4 new models in the second half of 2013, according to sources in BlackBerry's supply chain in Taiwan.

    BlackBerry's first entry-level BlackBerry 10 model, the BlackBerry Q5, is expected to be launched in July, targeting the entry-level segment in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East and Latin America, indicated the sources.

    Shipments of BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 have been maintaining at one million units a month recently, helping BlackBerry to maintain its market share, reveled the sources.

    The launch of BlackBerry Q5, which will come with a 3.1-inch touchscreen, dual-core processor and a QWERTY keyboard, will further ramp up shipment momentum for BlackBerry, said the sources.

    BlackBerry's major ODM and component suppliers in Taiwan, including Wistron, Silitech Technology and Ichia Technologies, will all benefit from rising shipment volumes at BlackBerry, the sources indicated.

    Wistron reportedly has landed orders for two entry-level models from BlackBerry, said the sources, adding that the ODM is expected to snap up 60% of smartphone orders to be released by BlackBerry in 2013.
