    Just arrived back from California after attending a trade show in Orange County. I was quite surprised how many people did not know that BlackBerry still made phones. Most mentioned that at one time having a bb, before moving over to another phone, usually Apple. I felt like a dinosaur along with my partner who also has a BlackBerry.

    It's funny how people forget that BlackBerry was the FIRST smartphone.

    Unfortunately it seems to be easier for folks to forget about a once iconic brand in the electronic industry.

    It seems that popularity is the driving force in the smartphone market theses days and folks who are buying them want what their friends are using and that's just the way it is at the moment.

    BlackBerry did get into smartphone business early and definitely a pioneer but the honor of making the FIRST smartphone I think belongs to IBM under the name Simon Personal Communicator.
