BlackBerry Torch sells okay in the US

Though us Brits have yet to get our mitts on the BlackBerry Torch QWERTY slider (well, except for your trusty Mobile Choice team, who got hands-on with it yesterday), RIM's most consumer-friendly smartphone yet has been out almost a week in the US.


It's not doing too well, according to analysts at RBC Capital Markets and Stifel Nicolaus. The device moved just 150,000 units over the weekend - compared to the 1.7 million Apple iPhone 4s sold in the first three days of launch.


Of course, it may not be the fairest comparison. Apart from the fact that we have yet to hear of 'RIM fanboys' who'll line up for hours to be the first to own the latest 'Berry, Mobile Burn also notes that sales of the Torch could well increase when RIM's corporate clients - still its main market - upgrade their handsets.
