Rim has reported staggering earnings in a report on Thursday which indicate that North American smartphone vanguard, RIM, Apple and Motorola may well be expanding significantly.
BlackBerry maker RIM have reported a record 37% of it’s third quarter revenue has actually come from overseas sales. According to MKM Partners analyst “Europeans are finally making a real difference in RIM’s financial performance”.
