After a duff couple of years for Research In Motion, the company had some good news yesterday: it lost $235m in the second quarter of 2012. Wait, what? Okay, so that’s not so good, but the net loss was smaller than analysts had been fearing, resulting in a bounce for the BlackBerry-maker’s share price. RIM’s revenues were $2.9bn in the quarter, as it shipped 7.4m BlackBerry smartphones and 130k BlackBerry PlayBook tablets. The company says it now has 80m subscribers around the world. “Make no mistake about it, we understand that we have much more work to do, but we are making the organizational changes to drive improvements across the company, our employees are committed and motivated, and BlackBerry 10 is on track to launch in the first calendar quarter of 2013,” said CEO Thorsten Heins.
