    Definitive History of the BlackBerry coming soon in book form

    Advertisement



    via InformationWeek

    Alastair Sweeny is working on a comprehensive history of the company behind the BlackBerry, and he's created a wiki to promote the upcoming book. From the sample chapter that's online right now, it looks like it will be an interesting read as it covers how the company formed, product design, funding, how the devices were used during Sept. 11, and even the genesis of the BlackBerry name.

    Here is the wiki with a sample chapter from the book for a brief taste of BlackBerry goodness in history form.
