    If this has been posted please delete my thread and I apologize.

    So just wondering how much of a boost that you all think RIM will get from this new venture, if you have not read or heard about the story yet here is a link to it (http://us.mobile.reuters.com/mobile/m/AnyArticle/p.rdt?URL=http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE5B83XH20091209). It seems analyst and stoxk holders believe something good will coke from this, so what about you guys.

    I don't think that RIM can capture a significant percentage of the Chinese Market.

    I honestly don't either with motorola and nokia holding so much confidence in their chinese consumers, but it could bring a significant boost in revenue for a time period which RIM needs.

    RIM's stock has gone up 11% in the past 5 trading days on these news. This venture seems to be a great source of revenue for the company.

    This is the second Chinese carrier to sign on with Research in Motion.

    The population of China is estimated at 1.3 Billion, or 20% of the Planets population.

    If 1% of the population chooses BlackBerry, that is 130 Million or 4 times the current subscriber total.

    Jeez, thank for that tidbit, and I think they will definitely grab hold of more then 1 percent seeing as they are probably going to target the corporate businesses hardcore.
