- Sales of BlackBerry's (BBRY) keyboard-equipped Q10 device, which the company hoped would help propel it back into the reckoning in the smartphone market, have been appalling.
- One Midwestern retailer said that his stores only ordered a few units per location, while those that were sold have been returned.
- Even in Canada, sales have disappointed. "The one we all thought was going to be the savior, just hit the ground and died," says an executive at a carrier in the country.
- Still, customers for the device include Univision Communications, the Department of Defense and ADP.
