RIM disappoints in second quarter; Stock tanks after-hours
RIM said it shipped 8.3 million smartphones in the period, adding 3.8 million new subscribers-just a tad under the 4 million that analysts were seeking. In another disappointment, the Canadian firm said it expects third Quarter sales of between $3.6 billion dollars and $3.85 billion, shy of the $3.92 billion dollars that Wall Street wants to see. Earnings for the current period are expected to range between $1.00 and $1.08 per share. Analysts expect to see $1.05 a share in profit for the third period.

Interesting... So were analysts thinking the all mighty blackberry was immune to the "recession?" I personally think the only thing cool that RIM devices have is the BBM. But those seem like solid earnings to me.. but hey, I am not an investment banker.

Where in this article does it talk about apple? iphone? seriously I think some people need to stop praising the Iphone so much it clouds their judgement. Iphone is not the best phone out there in fact any phone released in the US is not the best phone over seas has been killing us for quite some time. Man phonearena could talk about the lastest movies and people will say they're bashing apple get over yourself.
