It appears that BlackBerry could be through the worst. The company today released its latest financial results – which include figures from the launch of its Z10 handset – and they are not too shabby.
In fact Thorsten Heins, President and CEO of the company claims that BlackBerry is back in profit.
It has sold over 1 million BlackBerry Z10 handsets and 6 million smartphones overall were shipped in the quarter ending March 2nd.
“We have implemented numerous changes at BlackBerry over the past year and those changes have resulted in the Company returning to profitability in the fourth quarter,” said Heins
“As we go into our new fiscal year, we are excited with the opportunities for the BlackBerry 10 platform, and the commitments we are seeing from our global developers and partners. We are also excited about the new, dynamic culture at BlackBerry, where we are laser-focused on continuing to drive efficiency and improve the Company’s profitability while driving innovation. We have built an engine that is able to drive improved financial performance at lower volumes, which should allow us to generate additional benefits from higher volumes in the future.”
The company still has the Q10 handset up its sleeve too. That’s the one that runs the new OS but has an old school BlackBerry keyboard.
