PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's going to be a rough month for what was once one of the most successful smartphone companies in the world. Between all the Android and iOS violence, it's easy to forget there's this Canadian company which was still growing its userbase every month. However, it's expected the company will lose subscribers for the very first time.

This is a lie or a government coverup or something.

At least that is what they are saying on Crackberry.

If you read the article, it's an opinion piece filled with what analysts "think" will happen when RIM announces their numbers at the end of the quarter. Of course, it's got a nice doom and gloom headline, and everyone's treating it as fact...

Is someone shorting RIMM stock again?

Disclosure: I work for RIM.

That's kind of the way the market reacts to widespread analyst forecasts. The article sites a number of analysts at a variety of companies. This isn't to say that its a guaranteed going to happen kind of thing, but its closer in accuracy to a seasonal weather report than a random guess.
