Research In Motion's developer powwow this week delivered a small dose of good news as the company touted 80 million subscribers and kept its BlackBerry 10 timelines, but the bad news is on deck later today: fiscal second-quarter financial results. To say expectations for RIM's second quarter are low would be a major understatement. Wall Street is expecting RIM to report a loss of 47 cents a share on revenue of $2.5 billion for the fiscal second quarter, and a miss wouldn't surprise anyone.

Intel reckons the size of the processor will allow for tablets as slim as 8.5mm thick, which certainly qualifies as skinny. It also brings support for up to 8-megapixel cameras, Wi-Fi, 3G and even 4G, so it might not be long before a tablet is launched that will run on EE's brand new 4G network. There's no word on when we'll see this new chip in action or what forms the resulting tablets will take -- that's entirely down to the manufacturers. It's at a similar point as when Intel first detailed specs for the ultrabook, and it didn't take long before companies started showing off their own slim and powerful laptops to fit the bill.

No pricing has been mentioned, but Nokia vows to update customers at the end of October, at the same time that Microsoft is expected to publicly release its new smartphone software. The announcement of the Lumia 920 at Nokia World 2012 has created considerable interest in both the phone itself and Microsoft's operating system. A key feature of the 920 is optical image stabilisation in the camera, which should help achieve better still photos and less-shaky videos. The Lumia 920 will also be the first Nokia-made phone to make use of Telstra's new 4G network capabilities.
