Make no mistake, we understand that we have much work to do. We are doing the organizational changes needed to drive improvements across the enterprise and our employees are motivated and committed. In addition, BlackBerry 10 is on track and will be released in the first quarter of 2013.
Despite show optimistic, Thorsten Heins, CEO of RIM, is cautious before the unexpected improvement in the balance of accounts corresponding to the second quarter of the fiscal year 2013. Something to which Wall Street responded favorably increasing the value of the company’s shares by 16% in the hours after the announcement, pushing the 8.28 dollars per share. Gone are the $150 for participation that were beyond gala by 2008.
However, it is convenient to clarify the improvement to that Heins and the company which runs make reference in the press release disseminated from Waterloo, reflects a significant cut in losses suffered.
Compared to 518 million dollars in losses for the first quarter, the second quarter of the financial year reported “ just ” 235 million dollars, watching his revenue slightly increased by the sale of 7.4 million smart phones, pocketing the negligible nothingness figure of 2.9 million dollars.
The BlackBerry tablet is not taking off
The field of the tablets are still resisting the Canadian firm, despite the presentation of the BlackBerry PlayBook 4 G LTE last August. Of the 260,000 units sold in the previous quarter, RIM should comply with the corresponding to the last quarter 130,000.
However, the global sale of devices has made to grow the number of subscribers to services of their network of servers. Two million more who join existing ones to achieve the 80 million users worldwide.
Curious at least according to the recent information suggesting that some United States stores have not sold a single BlackBerry device in more than one month. Which indicates that possibly is to find your target audience in countries with emerging economies, where BlackBerry is still a high percentage of market share, as it can be the case of the India.
A small respite for the signing of Waterloo which could have taken the reins of the chaotic situation facing, waiting for the presentation of its new operating system, BlackBerry 10 and a new generation of devices that seeks to recover positions and, even more importantly, the trust of users.
Clear that even touch wait until a date to be determined in the during the first quarter of the next year 2013.
