BlackBerry, formerly known as Research In Motion, has most definitely seen better days.

To break up the pattern of the doom and gloom surrounding the failing company, we wanted to pay tribute to one of its most successful and popular devices … ever. The Curve 8330, a personal all-time favorite of mine.
