William Blair claims its North American checks indicate its FQ3 revenue forecast for Research In Motion (RIMM +0.9%) is at risk: at $2.5B, the forecast is already well below a $2.65B consensus. RIM, which reports on Thursday, isn't showing any ill effects, perhaps because NA has diminished to a very small portion of RIM's hardware sales. Shares have more than doubled from their Sep. lows, which means expectations are probably higher than they were going into the FQ2 report.
