Research In Motion reported a first-quarter profit of â‚¬307 million (US$482.5 million), up from the same period a year ago as revenue more than doubled, an Associated Press report said.
RIM said that its profit amounted to â‚¬0.53 (US$0.84) per diluted share for the three months ended May 31 compared with a profit of â‚¬143.2 million (US$223.2 million) or â‚¬0.25 (US$0.39) per diluted share a year ago, the report added.
Revenue in the quarter was â‚¬1.4 billion (US$2.24 billion), up from â‚¬643 million (US$1.08 billion).
However, shares in the BlackBerry maker fell during after-hours trading because the earnings fell short of market expectations.
The company said it added 2.3 million net new BlackBerry subscribers in the quarter for a total of over 16 million subscribers.
