Research In Motion’s shares jumped 2% (now at $43.75) after they announced the arrival of the BlackBerry PlayBook in the UK, set for June 16th. RIM, along with China Telecom, announced they will be releasing the BlackBerry Bold 9650. They also announced plans to launch BlackBerry services for small businesses in China.
RIMM stock has been taking a bit of a beating (near 23% drop) after RIM announced a 1Q profit warning. Hopefully, more product release news will bring the stock back up. Hey RIM, how about releasing details on the Monaco, Curve Touch, and more?
