In a statement that was released today, the company confirmed that the special committee will enquire about possible joint ventures, strategic partnerships or even the sale of the company, but stressed that  “there can be no assurance that this process will result in any transaction”.

BlackBerry confirms BB10 won’t come to PlayBook tablets after surprise loss

Announcing the results today, the company revealed that revenues increased from $2.8 billion a year ago to $3.1 billion but reported a GAAP (Generally accepted accounting principles) loss of $84 million.

This will come as a blow to the company, which renamed from Research in Motion at the start of the year.

RIM hints at new tablet as BB10 launch nears

The Canadian handset maker confirmed in a press release that it will advertise the operating system during the Super Bowl, and went onto refer to BlackBerry 10 as a “new mobile computing platform that will power the next generation of smartphones and tablets”.

The company didn’t expand on that point with any specific details, although previous reports have suggested that a larger BlackBerry tablet could be launched in the autumn of 2013. The tablet, apparently codenamed ‘Blackforest’, is thought to be 10-inch in size and come with 128GB of storage.

RIM will announce BB10 as well as the BlackBerry Z10 phone at the press conference [...]
