    It is estimated that BlackBerry have now sold in more than 12 million BB10 devices since launch on January 30th 2013. BlackBerry 10 is a mobile operating system from BlackBerry (Formally 'Research in Motion'.) BlackBerry 10 is based on technology developed by QNX Software Systems, which the company acquired in 2010.

    According to official sell in data the company sold in approximately 1 million BlackBerry 10 handsets in the final quarter of Fiscal Year 2013, during FY2014 the company sold through more than 5 million BlackBerry 10 handsets to end users and in FY2015 the company sold in 4.7 million BlackBerry 10 handsets. For the first 9 months of FY2016 it is estimated that the company has sold in approximately 2.1 million BlackBerry 10 handsets.

    Please take a look below at a chart which shows BlackBerry 10 performance for FY2015 and FY2016. Please note that Q3 FY2016 numbers are estimated.

    It's taken the company almost 3 years to reach this milestone which is very poor for a mobile OS launch. In comparison, Apple's brand new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus sold in a cumulative 13 million units during their opening weekend back in September. BlackBerry 10 handset shipments continue decrease each quarter and it's becoming clearer that there is no demand for BB10.

    When combining OS7, Android & BB10 sales it's estimated that 2.6 million BlackBerry handheld devices were sold in during the first nine months of fiscal 2016, compared to approximately 5.7 million BlackBerry handheld devices sold in during the first nine months of fiscal 2015.
