BlackBerry business booms

RIM believes that the boost in sales comes from targeting its smartphones at both consumers and businesspeople. The company today reported record-breaking sales over the past three months, having shipped ten million phones worldwide. The strong sales of the BlackBerry have helped RIM grow its quarterly revenues by 11 per cent and the company, founded by Canadian entrepreneur Mike Lazaridis in 1995, expects revenues to continue rising to between $4.2bn and $4.4bn over the next three months to the end of February.

The growing popularity of smartphones such as the BlackBerry and the iPhone has lead to a number of companies creating special "mobile sites" so customers can access web pages on the go. There are now a huge number business-related apps.
