RIM Ships 50,000,000 BlackBerrys

RIM Ships 50,000,000 BlackBerrys

10 years on and RIM has shipped fifty million BlackBerrys, which is a whole lot of smartphones to get buried under. The company behind the BlackBerry, Research In Motion (RIM), has grown to one that has a dozen thousand employees, and you can now pick up a BlackBerry in 150 countries from 425 different carriers to choose from, while trivia loving folks will be pleased to know that three petabytes of traffic every month is transferred thanks to some 21 million subscribers. Long live the BlackBerry, and guys, do continue to innovate as the iPhone and Google Android smartphones are bound to catch up with you sooner or later if you rest on your laurels. Who says competition is bad? Just bear in mind that the shipped number of units doesn't necessarily translate to 'sold' status.
