RIM has good first quarter but revenue fails to meet expectations; 2 new devices coming
The company said it will have two new phones coming out this year, one in the summer and one in the fall. While no model numbers were mentioned, most BlackBerry fans are hoping that the company soon launches the Bold 9800 which is expected to be a touchscreen model with a sliding portrait QWERTY keyboard. The phone will be running on the BlackBerry OS 6.0 with the new WebKit browser that RIM has been working on. The Bold 9800 has picked up a nice-sized online buzz and, as we reported, is expected to be released on AT&T as the manufacturer's strongest competition for the iPhone and the new batch of super spec'd Android phones.
