About BlackBerry

Research in Motion, RIM, is a Canadian-based wireless device company famous for the development of the BlackBerry smart phone line.

Show more

RIM was founded by Mike Lazaridis and is based in Waterloo, Ontario. Before the development of the BlackBerry, RIM worked with RAM Mobile Date and Ericsson, assisting in converting the Ericsson-developed Mobitex wireless data network into a two-way paging and wireless email network.

RIM has gone on to develop many different BlackBerry devices, which have become the smart phone of choice among business and government professionals. So loyal are BlackBerry users that the devices have come to be known as Crackberries, a back-door joke aimed at users who claim they cannot live without them.

Major competitors include Apple Inc., HTC, Palm, Motorola, Samsung and others.

2017's surprise gem

BlackBerry Motion

from Know Your Mobile

At the end of the day, reviews are personal opinion, and in my opinion the BlackBerry Motion is a fantastic little handset with a great user experience. It's not perfect, but I've found it one of the most compelling smartphone experiences in a long while.

The darker, leaner BlackBerry

BlackBerry KEYone

from finder.com.au

You're stuck for choice if you want a keyboard phone, but the KEYone Black is an improvement on its predecessor that makes the lack of choice easier to bear.

Handset for the masses, much more so than the earlier BlackBerry KeyOne

BlackBerry Motion

from TrustedReviews

Its privacy, productivity and security additions may not be essential, but they do feel like worthwhile additions that don’t ruin the usability of Android. And in prioritising battery life over an ultra-slight frame, BlackBerry has produced a real work horse phone.

The Motion might not be the sexiest smartphone around, but you get a lot for your £399. That feature-packed software is the best part, with a strong emphasis on security and staying organised, while the incredible battery life won’t leave you in the lurch. If only the camera were more capable and the processor a little nippier, we’d have no complaints at all.

Daylight shots come packed with detail, looking good no matter how big the screen you view them on. As far as simple home movies go, the Motion captures detailed footage with respectable results. You’ll notice the occasional issue such as lens flare popping up in bright conditions, although we’re more troubled by the lack of proper image stabilisation. The 8-megapixel camera housed around the front of the BlackBerry Motion does a respectable job of taking selfies.

Big, bold boss of business

BlackBerry Motion

from Pocket-lint

It's big, solid and has a touch of restrained class about it. BlackBerry is clearly trying to ensure it's made a touchscreen phone with all the perks business-types would expect from a BlackBerry, while being well-enough equipped to attract the average consumer.

Looking to attract the audience it once had

BlackBerry KEYone

from Digit

As a standalone device, the BlackBerry KeyOne is a good phone. However, throw competing smartphones into the mix at the same price point and it’s difficult to recommend the KeyOne.

Fone Arena

Targeted at the business users or those who loved physical keyboard

BlackBerry KEYone

from Fone Arena

Overall, the KEYone offers good performance, has a really good camera, comes with a physical QWERTY keyboard and the battery life is good as well. If you can manage the small display, hybrid SIM and can spend the amount, go for it.

It is a great phone

BlackBerry Z3

Price and other specifications are also good. But drawback is lack of dual sim as well unsupportance of NFC and limited active frames.

Simple, Elegant and Powerful

Give 2 weeks of true hands on experience with this phone. And you won't go back to iPhone.

Blackberry is back in the game with the Z30. The sound quality of the phone is excellent. Texting a is as good as any Samsung or iPhone I have tried. The Z30 excels with the reliable long battery life which is critical in an office setting. The web browser is as quick as any I have used on any cell phone. I frankly don't care if the phone doesn't have mind boggling screen resolution, it is a phone not a camera, and is more than adequate. Less
My screen got damaged and I don't know where to fix it up

Great comeback for BlackBerry

BlackBerry Z30

Although mine only has an above average battery life, I found the HUB and swipe much more fluent than other phones I've had. The browser is very fast and it surprised me by the quality of the screen. All in all, I would defiantly recommend this phone to friends and colleagues alike.
Awesome battery life !
If you are looking for a communication device rather than a camera then do not overlook the Z30. The upgraded platform is app friendly and I love the Hub, where I can get all my messages in one convenient spot. Most of all, being a Canadian, I get to support a national company.

Good But!!!

BlackBerry Z10

Problematic when loading pictures to Main PC. Very poor battery life
