WORLD'S FIRST BLACKBERRY
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's first Blackberry?
Today you can have your choice of
the Blackberry Pearl, Blackberry Storm, or a multitude of other options from
Blackberry that will allow you to talk on the phone, browse the Internet, and
check your email. It seems that there’s a new kind coming out every day and each
one is just a bit better than the last. So with all of these models to choose
from, what was the very first Blackberry?
The very first Blackberries were actually devices
that were called Inter@ctive Pagers. These models were 2-way pagers that had a
built-in keyboard that could be operated with the user’s thumb. They had basic
email and browsing capabilities but couldn’t run Java without the addition of a
JVM add-on. These could be called the first true Blackberries.
However, if by definition you mean the very first
gadget to come out under the Blackberry name, you’ll have to look after 2001
when the early models stopped being manufactured. These mono-chromed Java-based
models were the first Blackberries to ever hit the market and the 5000 and 6000
Series were among these first models and there were 5 ‘families’ altogether
within the series. The Specialty family was capable of email services only and
the Early Java-based family had a phone built-in but it could only be accessed
via headset. The Quark was a step up with an integrated phone as well as the
67XX. The 65XX had an integrated phone along with an integrated two-way radio.
Although there are 5 different families, they were all released within a fairly
short time period, some even at the same time and they can be determined as the
world’s first Blackberries.
