16 Interesting Facts About The BlackBerry

The BlackBerry brand has been synonymous with smartphones for close to a decade now. But while millions of people around the world own, use and are maybe even addicted to the devices, only a select few are familiar with the history of the BlackBerry and Research In Motion, or RIM, the company that actually makes the devices. This infographic put together by the team at Cell Phones.Org, details much of the BlackBerry’s and RIM’s history right up to the release of the new Blackberry Torch 9800, which just hit the scene a couple of weeks ago. Interesting stuff, but we’d hazard a guess that more than 53% of BlackBerry users check their phones while on the throne. And for everyone’s sake, the 37% of you checking in while driving—put the darn phone down!

Isn't fact #10 (Blackberry service available in 91 countries) constantly in flux considering the pending Arab and Indian crackdowns? Also, I would like to submit my own fact #17: Blackberry's don't suffer the reception issues that are found in iPhone 4's (commonly referred to as 'Antennagate').
