RIM says BlackBerry Subscribers Rose to 80 Million

This is a surprise. RIM revealed that there are more BlackBerry users that earlier this year.

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.
