RIM has a perfect ARM score of 100...
Quote from the last three paragraphs of an article in the Toronto Sun (Jan 24) regarding Apple's share price slide, sorry but it will not allow me to attach the link:
Apple is the lowest ranked stock among the marquee technology firms in the
United States based on the change in analyst sentiment, or Analysts Revision
Model (ARM), according to StarMine.
Apple’s global ARM score of 10 is well below Google Inc’s 34 and Microsoft
Corp’s 19 out of a possible 100. Nokia and Samsung have scores of 82 and 89,
Research in Motion Ltd has a perfect score of 100, according to the model,
which measures analysts’ revision of key indicators such as earnings and revenue
estimates and changes to their ratings.
Updated PlayBook Unlikely
I think it's unlikely we'll see the updated PlayBook on the 30th, it's not necessary at this time. RIM wants to cover all the bases in the mobile space, the 7" PlayBook is already out there in the hands of many users and it's hardware is still among the best despite the fact it was released in 2011. It only requires the BB10 update to surpass all the other tablets on the market in terms of power, speed and multitasking efficiency. The QWERTY X10 will maintain it's grip on the physical keyboard market and the 4.2" Z10 will battle to recapture market share from the iPhone 5. However it's the plus sized Samsung Galaxy S3 that RIM doesn't have an answer for yet, some users will not switch to a smaller form factor no matter how well the devise performs. The 4.7" Aristo will fit that bill perfectly, rounding out RIM's phone and tablet strategy to dominate the mobile computing space.
