Yesterday Research In Motion released its third quarter results, and what results they were.  The BlackBerry maker reported selling a record breaking 10 million BlackBerrys in Q3, the old record, 8.3 million phones, was set in the previous quarter. Perhaps the most encouraging stat of the quarter for RIM was not how many phones it sold, but rather who it sold those 10 million phones to. RIM is reporting that 80% of all new subscribers were non-corporate customers, a market in which, historically, RIM has been weak. As a quick numbers comparison Apple, Inc. sold just over 7.4 million iPhones in their most recent quarter.
