Ali Salman

If we glance upon Blackberry's history, it had almost conquered the smartphone market in its glory days and everyone took Blackberry as a status icon. Many of  Blackberry users had bought the smartphone because of the over whelming hardware keyboard which was undoubtedly the best in the market at the time. Apart from this the other amazing reason for the gigantic success of Blackberry was it personal BBM Messenger.

BBM was way superior and faster than any other service present back then, hence it made Blackberry a must have. Moving on as time passed by, Android devices and iPhones came with a whole lot of new features which made Blackberry pull back on its streak. However, BBM was still the most wanted app that the users demanded and along the years Blackberry launched the Android and iOS app on their host app stores.
