One million BlackBerry 10 smartphones? That's some order

14 Mar 13

BlackBerry shares have surged as news surfaces of a mega smartphone order, representing the largest ever single purchase order in the company's history.

Revealing that one of its established partners has placed an order for one million BlackBerry 10 smartphones, stocks went BB crazy last night, jumping 8% during trading hours.

The company, currently in the middle of takeover speculation, will hope the order kickstarts a BlackBerry craze, dragging the Canadian firm back into the smartphone market so to speak.

Cleverly releasing the news ahead of it's quarterly earnings report on March 28, BlackBerry is currently enjoying a purple patch it would seem, with company stock more than doubling since late last year.
