How many BlackBerry Android devices have been sold?

by Volker Weber

Sketch

Help me with Google Play Store statistics. If you look up DTEK, the software that comes with all BlackBerry Android devices, it shows less than half a million downloads. When you activate a PRIV, DTEK50 or DTEK60, it will automatically download all updates to pre-installed sotware from the store. So for each device, there should be at least one download. And I believe that every consecutive download no longer counts against that tally.

If I am correct, then BlackBerry has sold less than half a million of those three devices, combined. If you look for the BlackBerry Hub+ Services, that also runs on other Android phones, the number of downloads passes half a million but not one million.

Bottom line: Apple sells more iPhones in a single day than BlackBerry sold Android phones in more than a year.

Sad, but probably correct

ca. 0,1% of these Devices are currently managed by me... ;-)

The Google Play store keeps tabs for each country separately no?
