A look at BlackBerry's devices through the ages

The revolutionary Inter@ctive Pager 900 was one of the earliest pager models, launched by RIM in 1996. It specialized in two-way messaging and had limited HTML access, though it was e-mail capable. The pager was a surefire indicator that RIM had the technology chops to manufacture a product targeted at businesses.
