  • BlackBerry's (BBRY +1.3%) next touch-only flagship BB10 phone will be called the A10, launch in November, and be sold by Sprint, CNET reports, while providing scant details about its specs. Following the launch, the touch-only Z10 and QWERTY-sporting Q10 will reportedly be sold as mid-range devices (is a Q10 successor also on tap?). AllThingsD reported in March Sprint will sell a Z10 successor in 2H. [View news story]

  • BlackBerry (BBRY) has upped its component purchases from Taiwanese suppliers thanks to strong BB10 sales, supply chain sources tell Digitimes. The sources add Indonesian and Middle Eastern sales are healthy, and that if other emerging markets prove strong, BlackBerry is likely to ship 30M-40M smartphones in 2013 - Feb. quarter shipments totaled 6M, and were down 23% Y/Y. BBRY +1% in spite of lower NASDAQ futures. The sell-side has been arguing back and forth over BB10's early reception. [View news story]
    Oh no! They must need extra parts to repair all the returned phones! Kidding!

  • Z10 returns are in-line with those of other high-end smartphones, BlackBerry (BBRY -7.8%) insists, addressing a report that returns were now exceeding sales at some top retailers. Meanwhile, Pac Crest's James Faucette, who has been bearish on BlackBerry for some time, estimates today the weekly sell-through rates for the Z10 at U.S. carriers are only around 60K units. He forecasts just 2.9M BB10 shipments for the May quarter, with half that total consisting of channel fill. [View news story]

  • Bullish notes from Goldman's Simona Jankowski and Jefferies' Peter Misek didn't stop BlackBerry (BBRY -3.8%) from giving back some of yesterday's gains. Jankowski sees 2M-3M BB10 shipments apiece for the May-November quarters, and says Z10 checks at nearly 40 stores in 4 countries indicate "most stores had a successful launch week, followed by steady demand." Misek says his checks indicate build orders have been raised 3 times in 6 weeks, and speculates the 1M-unit order likely came from a U.S. carrier or a top distributor (Ingram Micro/Brightstar). [View news story]

  • BlackBerry (BBRY) +2.4% AH, adding to the 8.2% gain it saw in regular trading on news of a 1M-unit BB10 phone order (perhaps from AT&T or Verizon?). Wells Fargo says it's now more comfortable with its forecast for 2.5M May quarter BB10 shipments. FQ4 (Feb. quarter) results arrive on March 28. [View news story]
