The time for talk and for analysis has come to a close. The BlackBerry company’s first phone hit the market in earnest and now we wait and see how the market reacts. According to BlackBerry itself, initial indications are just fine. While the company followed in the footsteps of Amazon and Microsoft and refused to give solid numbers (probably wisely), it did say that sales for the Canadian release were 50 percent stronger than any of the company’s previous launches there. In the UK things looked even better, with sales 300 percent greater than any previous BlackBerry release.
