The issue of BlackBerry Z10 sales has come up more than once in the news lately, with different reports saying different things. Everything seemed to go splendidly for BB at first, with records being broken in the UK and Canada, but then several British price drops seemed to signal a toning down of customer interest.

The latest scoop is that the new high-end BlackBerry has indeed sold very well, at least where it’s been made available so far. That’s according to the man in charge, Thorsten Heins, the CEO of the company formerly known as RIM.

Heins has even boldly claimed that last month’s sales of the BB Z10 have gone above the corporation’s “ambitious expectations,” which has subsequently led to a production boost. “We are receiving a very positive response to BlackBerry 10 from our customers, but it’s also been attractive for customers coming from other platforms,” added Heins in an exclusive talk with Spanish newspaper Expansion.

There you have it, folks, it seems Android and/or iPhone fans have been swept off their feet by the Z10, in addition to old BlackBerry aficionados. Or have they really?
