Research In Motion (RIM) is facing fierce competition from computer maker Apple, which has ousted the Canadian smartphone maker from the No. 2 spot among smartphone vendors worldwide.

Recent statistics from Canalys noted that while RIM had an excellent quarter, which ended Sep. 30, it has dropped in rankings to be the world's third-largest smartphone maker. RIM increased BlackBerry shipments by 83 percent and grew its market share by five points.

Founded in 1984, RIM is based in Waterloo, Ontario, and operates offices in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. The Canadian company is a designer and manufacturer of wireless technologies for the worldwide mobile communications market. RIM also provides platforms and solutions that allow seamless access to time-sensitive information including e-mail, phone, SMS messaging, Internet and intranet-based applications.

RIM ranks among ZDNet Asia's Top 10 fastest-growing companies for 2008/2009.
