BlackBerry Sells One Million Handsets To Unnamed "Partner"

By Lily Newman on at

BlackBerry's demise, much talked about and somewhat goaded, is on hold while the world reacts to the BlackBerry 10 OS and two handsets launching on March 22. And already someone has come forward to buy a million units. So that's...unexpected.

The purchase is the biggest single order in BlackBerry history. It's not clear who all those phones are going to, but a BlackBerry spokesperson told AllThingsD that it was an anonymous "established partner." Could be a carrier or a government organisation, or maybe it's just the mum of every BlackBerry employee. [AllThingsD]
