Analyst Kulbinder Garcha, of Credit Suisse, who rates RIM a Neutral, expects the company to report revenue of $2.68 Billion during next Thursday’s Q1 financial report. This estimate is well below a consensus of $3.12 Billion.

Additionally, Garcha sees RIM’s global smartphone share falling to 4% in 2012 from 11% in 2011, and forecasts hardware losses of $2.5 Billion and $1.9 Billion for Fiscal Year 2013 and Fiscal Year 2014, respectively. It’s quite obvious RIM will likely post a loss, but do you expect it to be this bad?
