The New York Times: BlackBerry maker RIM today warned analysts that its third-quarter earnings would be less than the $5.3 billion to $5.6 billion that it previously forecast. RIM blamed the poor quarterly performance on weak smarthphone sales and price reductions on its PlayBook tablet.

The company will officially announce its quarterly results on December 15.
