The bad news just keeps piling up for BlackBerry maker Research In Motion, as the company said Friday that worse-than-expected sales of its PlayBook tablet will cause the company to fall short of its own financial estimates for the latest quarter.
Research in Motion's turnaround effort has hit yet another roadblock: The BlackBerry maker said Wednesday that it is delaying a much-needed update to the PlayBook tablet's operating system until February 2012.
â¢ Jennifer Lopez had the sweet support of hubby Marc Anthony while celebrating the release of her new album, Love?, in Hollywood. "Marc was doting on her and melted every time she acknowledged him," says an onlooker who attended the BlackBerry PlayBook-hosted bash. "He was totally supportive of her on her night." Anthony also snapped pictures of guests.
Once the most popular smartphone, the BlackBerry has been losing ground in the past year to iPhone and Android models. So Research in Motion is trying to carve out a new market with the PlayBook (the upcoming BlackBerry tablet) due to hit stores in the U.S. and Canada on April 19. Prices start at $499, same as for the iPad 2.
