This news could mean the comeback of BlackBerry. Turns out, the recently launched BlackBerry Passport, which comes with an odd, but uniquely designed squarish shape has ran out of stock from Amazon India.
However, the onione retailer said that the phone would be back in stock by October 20. However, it is not sure, how many units of the Passport, BlackBerry actually sold until now. The company also didn't disclose the number of units sold in the country.
The BlackBerry Passport went on pre-order exclusively on Amazon on the September 29 and was launched in India on October 11 for Rs 49,990. This is the first time after several years that BlackBerry smartphone has ran out of stock in such a less time, thus, the Canadian smartphone maker might want to deliver the second stock of the smartphone in India on time to keep up the hopes of Blackberry fans in India alive (more than that, to keep itself running in the business).
Amazon said that the smartphone found huge interest from outside the top eight metros. "Amazon.in has received orders for the BlackBerry Passport from 115+ cities across India," the statement issued Thursday said.
