RIMM Posts Better Than Expected Quarter

Research In Motion (NASDAQ: BBRY  ) reported fiscal 3Q 2013 earnings that were better than the market expected. According to a company press release announcing the results, revenues for the period totaled $2.7 billion, and net loss came in at $114 million ($0.22 per share) on an adjusted basis.

Those numbers were good enough to beat analyst estimates, which anticipated lighter revenues of $2.65 billion, and a deeper loss of around $180 million ($0.35).

Tech investors are keeping a sharp eye on the upcoming global launch of the BlackBerry 10, which is seen as critical for the fortunes of the struggling company.
