All eyes are on RIM, with CEO Thorsten Heins Tommorrow!

With Thorsten Heins the New President and CEO of Research In Motion during this new transitional period with the upcoming launches of new products including Blackberry 10 devices and the new Blackberry Playbook OS 2.o upate all analyst, investors, and the affiliates of the wireless industry are bracing for what will bring about with the fiscal Q4 2012 earnings call from tomorrow from RIM, this will be the first quarter of results under the head of new CEO Thorsten Heins.

Heins hasn’t had time to meet his first major goal yet — getting BlackBerry 10 shipping on exciting devices — but he’ll still need to guide Waterloo through what’s likely to be a tough year: the Wall Street Journal notes that analysts are anticipating profit of 81 cents per share, down from $1.78 per share a year prior. For what it’s worth, WSJ reports a source as saying that Heins is “instilling new focus” inside RIM with the sole goal of shipping BlackBerry 10, a marked break from the old leadership’s seemingly divided attention between 10 and the legacy BlackBerry 7 line; by all accounts, focusing on the future is exactly what Heins and his troops need to do.
