Last Friday, March 29, 2013 I went into one of the top COSTCOs in the NYC area (and perhaps in the USA), store 321, on the thruway. I wanted to check in at the “Wireless Advocates” kiosk and see how the launch of the Z10 was doing on TMobile, Verizon and AT&T at an independent multi-carrier vendor. They had not received any T-Mobile stock, they had 5 units from AT&T and 6 units from Verizon. They got stock from AT&T on Wednesday and from Verizon on that Friday morning. Since Wednesday, they had sold a total of 7 cellphones:
2 Droid RAZR max HD and 1 RAZR m
4 Samsung Galaxy S3 units
Not a single Z10 was sold. I went back Thursday, April 4, 2013, and I was told that they were now selling two Z10s a day. This was the same result at a Best Buy that I visited on Monday April 1, 2013, where the week before they had not sold any, and the dummy units for AT&T and Verizon were now out on display.
On Wednesday, April 3, 2013, I went to a Verizon store in the financial district where I was told that on the in-store launch day they sold out on their inventory of thirty Z10 units by noon. They are averaging twelve Z10 sales a day. So, it would seem that the Z10 is selling steadily, and more so in the financial district.
