For the low low price of $485,000,000

Me, last Monday:

Can't wait till the quarterly earnings statement that includes this promotion.

RIM, this morning:

Research In Motion Limited (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM), a world leader in the mobile communications market, today announced that it would record a pre-tax provision in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 of approximately $485 million, $360 million after tax, related to its inventory valuation of BlackBerry PlayBook tablets.

As 'a world leader' this must be a tough pill to swallow. Who would've guessed that a product which excludes one of the primary features that made RIM famous would sell so poorly. It's ok though, they'll add it by February.
