Many were skeptical about the #BlackBerryPriv before it was officially unveiled in the markets as leaks had given us a very good idea of what to expect from the device. However, it seems like the concept of a security oriented phone with Android and BlackBerry’s iconic keyboard on top is a very attractive combination for the customers.
The smartphone went on sale via Walmart just a couple of days ago as we mentioned in our story yesterday. However, it seems like the demand for the handset was pretty strong from America’s largest retailer as it is already sold out. This means that it took the handset less than a day to go out of stock, speaking volumes about the demand for BlackBerry’s latest.
Needless to say, BlackBerry will look to increase production and distribution accordingly to make sure a large number of customers are able to purchase the product. Walmart or BlackBerry are yet to offer details on the sales figures at the moment, so it’s very likely that the retailer didn’t have a lot of stocks to begin with.
