Share Price and BBM Down: Bad Timing To Say the Least

75 Comments

You may have noticed BBM down today as the service has been acting up for various regions and carriers. We have reports from both Toronto and Waterloo that BBM isn’t working. Have you experienced any problems? Let us know. More details after the break.

You can tell we haven’t written about an outage in a while because of the pictured model

We haven’t written about an outage for a long time and generally we stopped writing about them because RIM is pretty solid. RIM can maintain a 99% uptime which is pretty incredible given its size and infrastructure. Really, in order to have 100% uptime it would cost the company and the end user quite a bit.

The BBM outage comes at a horrible time though as RIM’s stock has taken a dive as well. After the Q2 financial reports, RIM’s share price has fallen -20.45% and now sits around 23.48.

Is BBM down for you at all today?

    Yet not a word from RIM, nothing, not on their web site, no press announcement …..
    Just as quiet as their BBM service.   Oh well.
