RIM says BlackBerry Subscribers Rose to 80 Million
According to Reuters, RIM unveiled that their BlackBerry subscriber base has risen to 80 million from the 78 million it reported earlier this year. The RIM stock jumped on this unexpected good news from the struggling smartphone maker.
Why are still consumers getting a BlackBerry? It is a mystery at first. The answer is that RIM is managing to get customers in emerging markets. There the BlackBerry email platform is actually still something cool if you can get it at a low price.
RIM is busy working on BlackBerry OS 10. 2013 will be the make or break year for RIM. The first BlackBerry OS 10 devices are supposed to launch in Spring of 2013.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
