BlackBerry is one of the most adored smartphone models by business owners, top-level executives, and frequent business travelers. Owned by the Canadian telecommunication giant Research In Motion, BlackBerry is the flagship brand of the company and has played a vital role in the company’s growth as a multi-national telecommunication powerhouse. It was in the year 1999 that BlackBerry was launched in Germany, initially as a two-way pager. After almost four years of research and development, RIM revamped the two-way pager model into a successful smartphone incorporating groundbreaking features such as push mail, web browsing, mobile telephone, and more. The first commercially available smartphone model was the Blackberry 950, which was launched in the year 2003.

After 2003 it was no turning back for BlackBerry as it started its era of market dominance by launching a series of successful smartphone models, starting from the BlackBerry Pearl Series in 2006 to the BlackBerry Torch Series in 2011. All BlackBerry smartphone models run on RIM’s proprietary BlackBerry operating system incorporating RIM’s critically acclaimed BlackBerry Messenger software. The functionality of a BlackBerry phone can be extended by downloading and installing the more than 90,000 thousands apps available for download from the BlackBerry App World. As of May 2012, BlackBerry App World housed over 99,000 apps and there were more than 6 million app downloaded going on the BlackBerry App World daily.
