BlackBerry Statistics: The Outage Will Cost RIM USD 100 MillionOctober 14, 2011 9:59 pm
We spotted this today:
“The most severe BlackBerry service disruption in the history of Research In Motion Ltd. could cost the Canadian mobile device maker more than US$100-million in lost revenues.
As some argue the damage to RIM’s future ability to brand its smartphones as immensely reliable is near total, Wall Street is focusing more specifically on the financial impact from the three-day outage. RIM charges wireless carriers a monthly fee for each active BlackBerry user, Rod Hall of JPMorgan Chase and Co. reminded clients on Friday.”
