Research in Motion Ltd. while doing business under it’s the name BlackBerry, is excited over the sales of its new touch screen model, the BlackBerry 10. This news is coupled with advanced sales by AT&T (NYSE:T) and the decision by Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) to sell the smart phone later in March.
