BlackBerry Curve 8320
By 2007, RIM had started to include wi-fi in its devices, including this Curve 8320.
As well as wireless connectivity — opening up the possibility of VoIP — the Curve 8320 made a step up in the camera front, with a two-megapixel included.
BlackBerry Pearl 8120
By 2008, the BlackBerry was making its way firmly into the non-business user segment, as this blinged-up mobile shows.
Luxury gadget maker Amosu gave the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 a very expensive makeover with the Limited Diamond edition, of which only 20 were made.
The device's sides and base are made of 18-carat gold, and it sports 900 hand-cut diamonds.
BlackBerry Bold 9000
In 2008, RIM debuted the first of its range to have HSDPA connectivity.
While it wasn't the first device to have some version of 3G connectivity, it was the first to be compatible with the higher speed version of the standard. It was also atypical among BlackBerrys, with most still using Edge — also known as 2.75G — as their primary standard.
