Did you know Blackberry founder Mike Lazaridis has won Emmy and Academy Awards in technical achievement for creating a groundbreaking digital barcode reader that significantly reduces film-editing time? This was all before the BlackBerry was invented!


Blackberry is a Canadian company based in Waterloo, Ontario that operates across the globe. Best known for its revolutionary BlackBerry Solution, it leads in employee satisfaction, award-winning wireless innovation, extensive philanthropy and investments in quantum computing and nanotechnology research.

The Buzz

The BlackBerry devices can become addictive; programmers and designers continually evolve what BlackBerry can do from Facebook and Twitter, to high-resolution videos, to sophisticated business tools, including Near Field Communications (NFC) and Augmented Reality integration. The BlackBerry has drawn international attention to Canada as a leader in wireless innovation, but it only begins to scratch the surface of Blackberry’s accomplishments. The latest offerings, the PlayBook tablet and the BlackBerry devices running OS7, are a big challenger in the mobile computing market.
