BlackBerry is a line of mobile e-mail and smartphone devices developed and designed by
Canadian company Research In Motion (RIM) since 1999.

BlackBerry functions as a personal digital assistant with address book, calendar, memopad
and task list capabilities. It also functions as a portable media player with support for music
and video playback and camera and video capabilities. BlackBerry is primarily known for its
ability to send and receive (push) Internet e-mail wherever mobile network service coverage
is present, or through Wi-Fi connectivity. BlackBerry has the ability to use wireless data
efficiently while using less power than other phones, three BlackBerrys use the same wireless
spectrum as only one other smartphone. BlackBerry is a powerful messaging phone with a
large array of messaging features in a smartphone today, including auto-text, auto-correct,
text prediction, support for many languages, keyboard shortcuts, text emoticons, push email,
push Facebook, Twitter and Myspace notifications, push Ebay notifications, push instant
messaging with BlackBerry Messenger, Google Talk, ICQ, Windows Live Messenger, AOL
Instant Messanger and Yahoo Messenger; threaded text messaging and a customizable
indicator light near the top right of all Blackberry devices. All notifications and conversations
from applications are shown in a unified messaging application which third party applications
can access. BlackBerry’s push gives BlackBerry devices a long battery life. All data on the
phone is compressed through BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS).

BlackBerry commands a 14.8% share of worldwide smartphone sales, making it the fourth
most popular platform after Nokia’s Symbian OS, Google’s Android, and Apple’s iOS. The
consumer BlackBerry Internet Service is available in 91 countries worldwide on over 500
mobile service operators using various mobile technologies.

Modern GSM-based BlackBerry handhelds incorporate an ARM 7, 9 or ARM 11 processor,
while older BlackBerry 950 and 957 handhelds used mudit 80386 processors. The latest GSM
BlackBerry models (8100, 8300 and 8700 series) have an Intel PXA930 624 MHz processor,
256 MB (or 4 GB in case of the torch 9800) flash memory and 265 MB SDRAM. CDMA
BlackBerry smartphones are based on Qualcomm MSM6x00 chipsets which also include the
ARM 9-based processor and GSM 900/1800 roaming (as the case with the 8830 and 9500)
and include up to 256MB flash memory. The CDMA Bold 9650 is the first to have 512MB
flash memory for applications. All currently manufactured BlackBerrys support up to 32GB
microSD cards.
The operating system used by BlackBerry devices is a proprietary multitasking environment
developed by RIM. The operating system is designed for use of input devices such as the
track wheel, track ball, and track pad. The OS provides support for Java MIDP 1.0 and WAP
1.2. Previous versions allowed wireless synchronization with Microsoft Exchange Server e-
mail and calendar, as well as with Lotus Domino e-mail. The current OS 5.0 provides a
subset of MIDP 2.0, and allows complete wireless activation and synchronization with
Exchange e-mail, calendar, tasks, notes and contacts, and adds support for Novell GroupWise
and Lotus Notes.

Third-party developers can write software using these APIs, and proprietary BlackBerry APIs
as well. Any application that makes use of certain restricted functionality must be digitally
signed so that it can be associated to a developer account at RIM. This signing procedure
guarantees the authorship of an application but does not guarantee the quality or security of
the code. RIM provides tools for developing applications and themes for BlackBerry.
Applications and themes can be loaded onto BlackBerry devices through BlackBerry App
World, Over The Air (OTA) through the BlackBerry mobile browser, or through BlackBerry
Desktop Manager.
