BlackBerry's Hail Mary, the Z30, lands on Verizon in November

Ian Paul | Oct. 30, 2013
BlackBerry has a last gasp, touch-only phone coming in November, and for U.S. fans the device will only be available only from Verizon.

On Tuesday, Nokia said it shipped around 1.4 million smartphones—mostly, if not completely, Lumia devices—to North America during its most recent quarter. That's nearly triple the North American sales from last quarter and close to quintupling Nokia's pathetic outing to American shores in the third quarter of 2012.

Nokia may not be selling a ton of phones compared to its competitor, but its sales base is growing and that's what counts. BlackBerry, meanwhile, is steadily shrinking—and the Z30 on Verizon is looking more and more like a long bomb in the dying minutes of an all-but-lost game.
