BlackBerry was largely responsible for popularising the smartphone as a portable communications device. Its handsets brought to the mass market mobile email, and at one stage it dominated the smartphone market. Every professional person had a BlackBerry, it seemed.
More recently BlackBerry has struggled, as first the iPhone and then Android and now Windows Phone 8 smartphones took market- and mind-share away from RIM's product. Lack of apps and a slowness to adapt to touchscreen technology made BlackBerries seem almost quaint.
RIM hopes that BlackBerry 10 will change that. It believes that by updating its platform and releasing new handsets it can attract consumers, whilst maintaining its position as the undisputed king of smartphone fleet management from the server side. It believes it can be the phone you want, and the phone your IT support guy wants you to have. We shall see - and you can watch with us.
