Score one for BlackBerry. Or 1 million to be exact.
Days ahead of its U.S. launch, the Canadian phone maker said it received an order for 1 million of its new Z10 smartphone -- making it the largest single order in its history.
According to the Associated Press, BlackBerry, formerly known as Research in Motion, did not disclose who placed the order. The company did say, however, that it came from an established partner and that shipments would begin immediately.
BlackBerry has two new devices, the touchscreen-only Z10 and the Q10, which has a physical keyboard. The company hasn't said when the Q10 will launch in the U.S., but Verizon and AT&T have begun taking orders for the Z10.
