The first BlackBerry device, the 850, was introduced in 1999 as a two-way pager in Munich, Germany. The name BlackBerry was coined by the marketing company Lexicon Branding. The name was chosen due to the resemblance of the keyboard's buttons to that of the drupelets that compose the blackberry fruit.

In 1998 the concept of a classy phone was smaller is better, and the clearest voice sound was king. There used to be intermittent reception with sound distortions so the emphasis was on top-grade antennas with premium prices.



At the time Blackberry was not competing in the phone market.
