Goldman Sachs is calling the BlackBerry Torch launch “underwhelming” citing that there were virtually no retail stores sold out of the device. This isn’t anything new for RIM, as their devices don’t garner the same hype as other smartphone manufacturers and sales tend to accumulate over longer periods.
The firm noted that nearly all of the stores they called did not sell out of the device. Also the checks showed that the vast majority of Torch sales were driven by upgrades from existing BlackBerry subscribers.
It’s good to see that a lot of BlackBerry users are upgrading to the Torch because it’s a really solid device for those who have been BlackBerry users for a long time.
