Read full description of the books Blackberry: The Inside Story of Research in Motion:The BlackBerry is -- quite literally -- everywhere. President Barack Obama admits he can't live without it. Oprah Winfrey declared on her show that the BlackBerry is one of her "favorite things." "BusinessWeek" put the case for owning one bluntly in an article entitled "No BlackBerry: No Life." Launched in 1984 by Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsilliewith on a $15,000 loan, Research in Motion (RIM) has grown into one of the largest and most profitable companies in the world. The reason: the BlackBerry. RIM had sold more than 50 million BlackBerrys by 2009 and sales of the handheld device generates annual profits in excess of $11 billion. "BlackBerry: The Untold Story of Research in Motion" is bestselling author Rod McQueen's fascinating and absorbing biography of the device's incredible popularity, as well as a never-before-seen glimpse into its origins and development -- and the geniuses who were its inspiration.
