Blackberry 10 already ruffles feathers


It appears
like there's some really healthy interest in Research in Motion's upcoming push as the company is nearing the launch of its brand new Blackberry 10 line.

RIM's shares jumped by 17.3 percent, which is attributed to optimism surrounding the upcoming launch. Apparently, this is courtesy of National Bank's analyst Kris Thompson, who boosted the price target from $12 to $15, prompting others to do the same.

Thompson rated RIM's stock at “outperform”, which does put some pressure on the company but again indicates the market's expectations quite well.
