    really? 1999? ok, let me rephrase it.

    when did it pickup and became really popular?

    My guess would be...when they introduced the Pearl? (By "popular" I am assuming you mean non-business, mainstream consumers?)

    IMO the BB came to the forefront of popularity with the consumer market about a year and a half ago, sometime around the first 3-5 months of the 8700 series being launched.

    They were called Blackberries from the start. Originally, it was just barely a pager for email & WAP. Phone & SMS capabilities came out later.

    i remember the first RIM device, one of the managers in my office had one. It was basically a fancy two way pager at the time.

    but the novelty wore off after a while I he hated it.

    Yup. That's the 850. I have the blue RIM 950 AOL Mobile Communicator. Too bad I can't get my hands on a serial cable converter with a docking station and converter software. I'd convert that thing in a minute and use that instead of going thru as many devices as I have.
