BlackBerry refutes reports claiming Z10s being returned by buyers
| by Nikhil Subramaniam |
BlackBerry has reacted strongly to claims by an investment house that the company’s brand new Z10 handset is being turned back in by buyers after being dissatisfied with its performance.
BlackBerry is up in arms about a report saying Z10s are being returned to stores by buyers
"Sales of the BlackBerry Z10 are meeting expectations and the data we have collected from our retail and carrier partners demonstrates that customers are satisfied with their devices," BlackBerry President and CEO Thorsten Heins said, before adding, "Return rate statistics show that we are at or below our forecasts and right in line with the industry. To suggest otherwise is either a gross misreading of the data or a wilful manipulation. Such a conclusion is absolutely without basis and BlackBerry will not leave it unchallenged."
BlackBerry Chief Legal Officer Steve Zipperstein called the report "materially false and misleading." He added," We call upon the appropriate authorities in Canada and the United States to conduct an immediate investigation. Everyone is entitled to their opinion about the merits of the many competing products in the smartphone industry, but when false statements of material fact are deliberately purveyed for the purpose of influencing the markets a red line has been crossed."
Zipperstein said that his company would present a formal request to US and Canadian regulators in the next few weeks.
