    $BBRY appears to have fabricated a 'sell out' situation in Canada by supplying carriers with only a very limited number of Z10 units.

    • Noodlez: 50% better than any previous release in canada. and i guess it's not measured in number of sold out stores http://bloom.bg/XpW9Yp

    • htp1498: bogus statement, 50% better than any BB launch in history. This calculation is based on unit sales.

    • chattyintrovert: Apple does this all the time... limit supply to drum up support. The fact is that they are still getting the best demand they have ever had.

    • C.E.: Chatty, exactly. Crapple is worse because their first weekend sales were only in limited stores, thus guaranteed long queues

    • Noodlez: @chat there's a difference between stating "sold out" and "50% better than ever before". the second statement is based on sold units.

    • C.E.: if not for the Canada winter, I will not be surprise that BBRY will do the same trick as crapple.
