BlackBerry OS - Operating System

BlackBerry OS is a proprietary mobile operating system created by Canadian mobile company blackberry mobile limited for its blackberry mobile handset devices. The BlackBerry OS runs on Blackberry variant phones like the BlackBerry Bold, Curve, and Pearl and Storm series. The BlackBerry OS is designed for smartphone environments and is best known for its robust support for push Internet email.  

Around 20 years ago Blackberry first launched 1.0 version of BlackBerry OS. Than the 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th versions were released on 2002, 2009, 2010, and 2011 respectably. The latest version was released on November 2013 as BlackBerry OS 7.1 for BlackBerry 9900.

The BlackBerry OS can run only on BlackBerry phones. BlackBerry OS is similar to Apple’s I OS in this matter. The BlackBerry was written in C++ and java languages. It was a multitasking operating system.

There are three ways of installing apps on a BlackBerry OS: downloading an app from BlackBerry App World, over-the-air through the device’s built-in browser and via the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

Now days it lost its popularity due to its availability only for blackberry phones and availability of massive features on android, Microsoft and apple platforms.
