"Our Asia checks indicate [BB10 phone] builds have recently increased from 2M/month to 2M+," says Jefferies' Peter Misek, who returns from his Asian trip writing more favorably about BlackBerry (BBRY +1.9%) than Apple. Misek adds checks indicate "2-3 additional BB10 models are likely to launch before year end" - a mid-range QWERTY phone (the R-Series?), a mid-range touchscreen phone, and a 5" touchscreen phone. He also claims Z10 sell-through data is steady, and Q10 business channel pre-sales are strong. (previous)
