RIM’s market cap peaks Motorola’s


Stock marketUpon hitting the $227.52 mark last Friday, RIM has surpassed Motorola in total market value: $42.3 vs. $41.4 billion. According to some, we can thank BlackBerry’s strong focus on software for the gains, but RIM makes most of their revenue from hardware. Of course strong profits have also helped push RIM’s stock well over the $200 line. It’s great to see things still doing so well in the wake of the iPhone, but you still can’t help but feel like you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. Something is going to deflate RIM sooner or later, but if Apple can’t do it, who will?
