BackBerry is a line of smartphones developed and designed by Canadian Company Research in Motion (RIM) since 1999. With the use of BlackBerry Internet Services (BIS) the device has a distinct advantage over it's competition in pushing data efficiently to email and instant messaging, with minimal battery use.

These devices run BlackBerry OS which is a proprietary mobile operating system developed by RIM. The current version of the operating system is version 7 which powers the BlackBerry Bold 9900.
