10 of the most memorable BlackBerry smartphones of all time

10 of the most memorable BlackBerry smartphones of all time
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock the last couple of days, you’ve probably been hearing left and right about some exciting news out of RIM’s camp. Now that BlackBerry World is in full swing, we’re hearing about some new products that will hopefully put the veteran smartphone maker back on track to the positive. Before we get all excited about these forthcoming BlackBerry 10 devices, we have to look back at some of the legacy smartphones that made an indelible impact for RIM.

Interestingly enough, the modern BlackBerry first started out strictly as an email/messaging device – with no voice calling capabilities whatsoever. So yeah, it’s almost unbelievable to see how far we’ve come since those olden days. Over time, RIM’s BlackBerry devices were outfitted with an arsenal of features to round out their prestige amongst the competition. From SureType keyboards to trackballs to touchscreens, we’ve seen an extensive line of devices that cater to a wide range of people. Initially, business/enterprise users were the primary targets for RIM’s smartphones, but as we’ve come to expect, they eventually branched out to the  bread and butter everyday consumer.

With that, let’s revisit 10 of the most memorable BlackBerry smartphones of all time!

Without a doubt the curve 8300 series and the 9000 bold. The latter being my fav of all time.

the picture caption for the 9900 is wrong, it says 9000. The keyboard is very nice though.

Bold 9900/9930 ftw! I still love those devices if only they had better specs and if it came in white for the US carriers.
