Thorsten Heins, Mike Lazaridis elected to RIM board during shareholders meeting

What's anticipated to be a testy shareholder meeting for Research in Motion kicked things off in a fairly status quo matter, with 10 directors being confirmed as part of the struggling smartphone maker's board. That list includes CEO Thorsten Heins and founder Mike Lazaridis. The elections, one attendee noted, were "not an overwhelming approval," with 14.8 percent and 19.1 percent of votes withheld for Heins and Lazaridis, respectively.
