The BlackBerry is a line of wireless handheld devices and services designed and marketed by BlackBerry. The first BlackBerry device, an email pager, was released in 1999. The most recent BlackBerry devices are the Z10, Q10, and Q5. The Z10 and Q10 were announced on January 30, 2013 and the Q5 was announced on May 14, 2013. The user interface varies by model; most had featured a physical QWERTY keyboard, while newer generations have relied on a multi-touch screen and virtual keyboard.
The BlackBerry Curve brand was introduced on May 3, 2007 with the Curve 8300 series. The Curve brand continued the “consumer-oriented” philosophy of the BlackBerry Pearl and 8800 series, including multimedia features and a built-in camera. As is customary for BlackBerry devices, the 8300 series consists of several models offered by different wireless providers, supporting that provider’s network along with specific services.
