While Apple slumps thanks to iPhone component order cut reports, Research In Motion (RIMM +8.3%) is continuing its recent tear; shares are now up 23% from Thursday's close and have fully recouped the giant losses seen following RIM's FQ3 report, which raised fears the company's services revenue will soon fall sharply. Short-covering and enthusiasm about the upcoming BlackBerry Z10 seem to be the main factors.

    The last six months for AAPL vs RIMM are pretty interesting when you look at the chart

    Investors are finally beginning to figure out that not just the carriers are on board, but so are developers. With 15K Android apps ported over in a 36 hour port-a-thon session, the app catalog for BB10 is rapidly growing. I'm really curious to see how many apps BB10 launches with. With a few more port-a-thons scheduled, we may just see 150K-175K apps at launch. That is insane!

    I heard they had an app contest. The winner would win a prize. Forgot what it was.

     

    (RIMM) CEO said he wants at least 100K apps by BB10 launch.

    I have some colleagues in a large 5000 person engineering firm who were offered I phones at $50 if they would ditch BB. They bit and they are not happy. Less than 50% battery life and lots of dropped call issues. Many are still packing their BB's.

     

    I think there are a lot of stories like this...... The grass seemed greener over there. They will be coming back in droves.

     

    Cheers
