BlackBerry reports they sold 1.9 million smartphones in their third quarter, down from 3.7 million in the previous quarter. Since not all quarters are created equal, it's better to compare year over year. The blue curve is last year, the green curve is this year. This looks like BlackBerry 10 is a burning platform.
also majority of devices sold were BlackBerry 7..
I guess most people with "legacy" BB are used to have two devices anyway and therefore don't care about the new plattform.
There was a small spike of interest in BES 10 after the CAL license had dropped but certainly nothing compared to their golden age. Biggest issue is still the lack of functionality and application support compared to BES 5.
I think you might have something mixed up there. They actually sold 4,3 million devices of which 3,2 million were BB7 devices. The 1,9 million is the number of devices _recognized in hardware revenue_ during the third quarter. Does not make it any better though...
I am only recognizing what BlackBerry is recognizing. If you look at the number of devices sold out of access inventory, they are higher. And they are very sobering. 1.1 million BlackBerry 10, 3.2 million BlackBerry 7. A quarter before they would only say that "most of the units" were BlackBerry 7.
During the third quarter, the Company recognized hardware revenue on approximately 1.9 million BlackBerry smartphones compared to approximately 3.7 million BlackBerry smartphones in the previous quarter. Most of the units recognized were BlackBerry 7 devices. During the quarter, approximately 4.3 million BlackBerry smartphones were sold through to end customers, which included shipments made and recognized prior to the third quarter and which reduced the Company's inventory in channel. Of the BlackBerry smartphones sold through to end customers in the third quarter, approximately 3.2 million were BlackBerry 7 devices.
During the second quarter the company recognized hardware revenue on approximately 3.7 million BlackBerry smartphones. Most of the units recognized are BlackBerry 7 devices, in part because certain BlackBerry 10 devices that were shipped in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 will not be recognized until those devices are sold through to end customers. During the quarter, approximately 5.9 million BlackBerry smartphones were sold through to end customers, which included shipments made prior to the second quarter and which reduced the Company's inventory in the channel.
