Analyst: RIM's BlackBerry 10 Ship Slip Could Be 'Fatal'

Research In Motion's inability to ship its BlackBerry 10 operating system in time for the holiday season could have serious ramifications for its ability to remain viable in the marketplace, according to a new study from Raymond James & Associates.

"Considering BB10 for BlackBerry will not arrive until after the holiday season in first-quarter 2013, the oft-delayed move to the new platform might prove to be fatal," Tavis McCourt, a managing director of equity research with Raymond James, said in the report.
