Glentel has more than 330 Wirelesswave across the country and said it would not provide the exact sales figures.

According to recent reports, which suggests that the BlackBerry Z10 was sold out at several retailers across Canada and UK, but a number of industry analysts claimed that stock-out of the devices were the result of limited supply.

On Sunday, BlackBerry CEO, Thorsten Heins claimed that BlackBerry Z10 sales are growing faster than expected and also increased the production of the device.

"We are above our own expectations and our target was thoroughly ambitious," said Heins. "The fact is, we were surprised by the good reaction and we've increased our production capacity in the meantime," Heins told to a newspaper in an interview.
