Three days ago, The BlackBerry Passport, the Canadian firm’s new flagship, went live on the company’s website. Just six hours after going on sale, stocks were quickly sold out. This is the same case with Amazon, which sold out its stock after only 10 hours.
The news comes to us courtesy of Bloomberg:
BlackBerry Ltd. (BBRY:US) says it has sold 200,000 Passport smartphones, which are profitable at the current price points of $599 in the U.S. and C$699 ($627) in Canada.
The square-screened Passport sold out in 6 hours on BlackBerry’s website and within 10 hours on Amazon.com, Chief Executive Officer John Chen said today on the company’s earnings conference call.
Although it seems BlackBerry CEO John Chen has taken the conservative approach to getting his company back on track, it looks like the Canadian phone maker is slowly getting its mojo back.
