Our good friend and independent Research In Motion analyst @SurrealCivic has taken the time to piece together the numbers from the last four years. We have three charts for your viewing pleasure: Revenue, Net Income GAAP, and Units Shipped. All of the data for these charts have been gathered from RIM, and can be found at http://rim.com/investors/documents/pdf.
The Units Shipped chart is for smartphones only and does not include the BlackBerry PlayBook. But here’s a quick rundown of PlayBook units shipped: 500k in Q4 FY2012, 150k in Q3 FY2012, 200k in Q2 FY2012, and 500k in Q1 FY2012.
RIM will be announcing their Q1 Fiscal 2013 Results today after the closing bell (5pm EST). We hope our charts can give you an insight into the last four years of RIM. It may be a decline, but it certainly doesn’t spell death. Nevertheless, keep it locked to N4BB today as we cover all the financial news.
