(AME Info (Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) May 02--RIM MIGHT LOSE MORE GROUND IN SMARTPHONE MARKET: Analysts have said BlackBerry maker Research-In-Motion (RIM) could soon see its share of the global smartphone market dip below 5 percent, despite plans to launch a new generation of BlackBerry 10 smartphones later this year, Reuters has reported. RIM had an 8.8 percent slice of the global smartphone market in the fourth quarter, according to research firm Gartner, down from 14.6 percent a year earlier. "In the ever competitive smartphone market, Nokia, RIM, Motorola, Sony, LG, and a slew of others are donating market share, while Samsung and Apple continue to gain market share," RBC Capital Markets analyst Mark Sue wrote in a note to clients.
