China BlackBerry KEYone Pre-Order reaches 111K

We always like to hear some news about sales figures and this time we bring you news about the KEYone pre-order on the Chinese store that selling the KEYone.

When this was written more then 111,000 customers bought the KEYone from JD, and this only 3 days after the pre order began, We know that the Chinese market is very important and even when you are not top player in selling numbers, you can sell few millions of handsets.

The JD site shows how many appointments people placed. Every appointment is new costumer who purchased the BB Mobile device. In the last few quarters before BlackBerry did their choosee to partner with TCL, they sold around 500K per Fiscal year, and now more then 111K only in few days, add this to sells in North America and Middle East and you will probably get better number in only 3 months.

    I’d be curious to know how many handsets of the K1 have been sold so far and how that compares to past devices like the DTEKs, the Priv, and the Passport. I don’t think we’ll get any numbers until such time as it’s actually doing modestly well.

      TCL reports every quarter cause they public company. But at least before they took BlackBerry devices they didn’t mention what is the distribution of any brand they have.

    It’s pretty exciting to see it in so many places and see the demand for it! China could be a huge market for BlackBerry Mobile if it catches on well.

    Great news. BlackBerry plan to license it’s mobile software is obviously paying off. This should put BlackBerry smiles in many BlackBerry fan faces. How big is BlackBerry software going to become? How far will it go? How many people will the software licencie companies convert to BlackBerry or back to BlackBerry? How is BlackBerry going to react to this?
