BlackBerry-maker RIM outlook disappoints, shares drop 12 percent
Research In Motion said its quarterly earnings and gross margin would come in at the low end of expectations even as subscriber growth topped forecasts, a warning that sent shares of the BlackBerry maker down almost 12 percent on Wednesday.
Analysts said RIM was able to attract new subscribers with flashy smartphones such as the touch-screen Storm or high-end Bold, but its existing customers were not upgrading their devices as frequently with economic conditions weak.
fixed it. lol

i think RIM will be okay. especially with what their rumored lineup is to be this year
