BlackBerry sales still growing

Research In Motion (RIM) the company that makes BlackBerry smartphones has this week announced its quarter three results and once again the company are still picking up an astounding number of new customers.

As a recent convert to a BlackBerry I am constantly amazed how popular the handsets are and I’m sure that RIMs position will continue to increase despite the rapid ongoing growth of both the iPhone and the newer Android OS.

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2010 was $3.92 billion, up 11% from $3.53 billion in the previous quarter and up 41% from $2.78 billion in the same quarter of last year. Approximately 4.4 million net new BlackBerry(R) subscriber accounts were added in the quarter. At the end of the quarter, the total BlackBerry subscriber account base was approximately 36 million.


"We are pleased to report record shipments of more than 10 million BlackBerry smartphones during the third quarter with higher than expected revenue, earnings and subscriber growth," said Jim Balsillie, Co-CEO at Research In Motion. "RIM is experiencing a great start to the holiday buying season and the strong Q3 results and Q4 outlook clearly reflect the strength of our diversified product portfolio as well as the success of our efforts to expand into broader customer segments and new geographies while maintaining our strong position in North America."
