BlackBerry today released their sales figures from the first quarter of the year and although it’s still not up to scratch, it surely is a step in the right direction.
BlackBerry is back, don’t forget to take a look at Amzer’s wide variety of BlackBerry Z10 accessories.
The first earnings report since the company changed its name to BlackBerry and launched its comeback in the form of BlackBerry 10. In the first three months of this year BlackBerry lost a further 3 million customers, leaving them with roughly 76 million users. Their $114 million loss from the previous quarter turned into a $94 million profit as revenue dived 2% to roughly $2.7 billion. The company also announced that they had sold 1 million BlackBerry 10 smart phones.
The company is expected to sell more devices this quarter as the BlackBerry Z10 enters more markets and the BlackBerry Q10 officially goes on sale. BlackBerry co-founder, Mike Lazaridis, also announced that he would leave the company as chairman of the board of directors. “With the launch of BlackBerry 10, I believe I have fulfilled my commitment to the Board… I believe I am leaving the company in good hands,” Lazaridis was quoted as saying.
