Shares of BlackBerry (Nasdaq: BBRY) are beboppin' higher Monday morning following word from the company that Z10 sales might have been better than expected.

CEO Thorsten Heins commented to German news source Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that the Waterloo, Ontario-based mobile device maker was needing to increase production to keep up with demand.
