ChannelWeb: It's been 10 years since Research In Motion (RIM) Ltd. rolled out the first BlackBerry device. In that decade, BlackBerry has become synonymous with mobility and is seen as the gold standard for mobile applications like email and calendaring. Today, BlackBerry is credited with creating some of the most forward thinking, feature packed smart phones out there; a huge transition from the clunky brick-styled devices of yore. Today, you can't ride a train or grab a cup of coffee without seeing someone with their face aglow with the backlight from their BlackBerry screen as they scroll through emails and messages. The addictive nature of the devices has led some users to refer to them as "CrackBerrys" because of the drug-like hold they have on their loyal users.
