Today is the last peek the market will have into RIM’s finances before it releases its’ much anticipated new line of smartphones in the new year.

Research In Motion posts its third-quarter numbers after markets close.

Analysts will closely be watching the company’s cash volume and subscriber numbers after the BlackBerry-maker surprised in the last quarter with better-than-expected numbers on both fronts.

RIM has already said it expects to report an operating loss in the third quarter.

Analysts are expecting a quarterly loss of 32 cents per adjusted share on revenue of $2.6 billion.

On January 30th, the company will unveil a new line of smartphones running its latest operating system.
