BlackBerry Bold 9930 rear

BlackBerry manufacturer Research In Motion just posted its second quarter fiscal 2013 results, reporting a revenue of $2.9 billion, an increase from the $2.8 billion figure that the company announced back in Q1. RIM's GAAP net loss for the quarter worked out to be $235 million. In terms of device shipments, RIM says that it managed to move 7.4 million BlackBerry handsets during Q2 2013, while PlayBook shipments finished at 130,000. The worldwide BlackBerry subscriber base is now at around 80 million users.

This quarter appears to be a bit of a mixed bag for RIM. While the company did see higher revenue and an improved net loss, it still saw a $235 million net loss, and shipments of BlackBerry phones and the PlayBook also dropped from Q1. Of course, RIM also announced last quarter that BlackBerry 10 was being pushed back to Q1 2013, and so far we haven't seen any disappointing news like that in this year's report, so there is that. RIM is scheduled to kick off is Q2 2013 earnings call at 5:00 p.m. Eastern, and you can bet that we'll bring you any other important details that the company may have to share. Stay tuned.
