BlackBerry Z10 Gets Record Orders in Canada

BlackBerry’s Z10 smartphone has attracted record orders at Canadian wireless carrier BCE Inc., and analysts say sales are off to a strong start in the U.K., sparking a 23 percent stock rally over the past two days.

BCE, Canada’s No. 2 carrier, said early orders for the Z10 have topped any previous BlackBerry model, while one Rogers Communications Inc. outlet in Toronto had sold out of the Z10 by 11 a.m. today on the first day of sales.
