Fourth quarter and year-end results are in and even though RIM came in slightly short of what the street was expecting for the fourth quarter the BlackBerry maker posted a 66% rise in sales and added over one million new subscribers.

The big news of the day, however, is that the informal stock-option grant review by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has been upgraded to a formal review and on that news, RIMs stock price is down about 7%.
