Engadget’s Chris Ziegler has a great article recounting the past 10 years of BlackBerry. The article is sort of a history of RIM, but also gives you a good idea of the environment that RIM was working in and the climate of competition. The article takes you through RIM’s history almost like reading a biography, with the formative years being the pager series, right up to adult-hood, which is our modern day BlackBerry. This is definitely a worthwhile read for any BlackBerry enthusiast.
