    Shares in Research in Motion (RIM) fell 12% in after-hours trading after the firm said profits this quarter will be much weaker than expected.

    It blamed the cost of developing its new tablet-format Blackberry, as well as a migration of consumers towards cheaper handsets in its product range.

    The success of the iPad must have put company boardrooms in a tizzy in an effort to catch up or get ahead of Apple.

    at least they're willing to take the risk and not worry about a bad quarter, but instead focus on the big picture.
