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.

    As an investor, I expect results that are more typical of startups than an established company. In North America, they have no current smartphone product to sell. Verizon Wireless is not even showing a full screen Blackberry as available on its web site.

     

    I am prepared to ignore any NA sales numbers in these results. What I do need to hear is that NA rollout of BB10 is on schedule.

    Even if it isn't, it won't be a long way off, and they are hardly likely to go broke in the meantime! OK, yet another delay would still be bad news, but how likely is that?
