In 2013, Black Berry introduced Black Berry 10, a major revamp of the platform based on QNX operating system.Black Berry 10 was meant to replace the aging Black Berry OS platform with a new system that was more in line with the user experiences of modern smartphone operating systems.

At its peak in September 2013, there were 85 million Black Berry subscribers worldwide.

The Black Berry line traditionally uses a proprietary operating system developed by Black Berry Limited known as Black Berry OS.

The name was chosen due to the resemblance of the keyboard's buttons to that of the drupelets that compose the blackberry fruit.

The original Black Berry devices, the RIM 850 and 857, used the Data TAC network.

The trackball was replaced by the optical trackpad with the introduction of the Curve 8500 series.

Models made to use i DEN networks, such as Nextel, Southern LINC, NII Holdings, and Mike also incorporate a push-to-talk (PTT) feature, similar to a two-way radio.

On September 23, 2013, Fairfax Financial, which owns a 10% equity stake in Black Berry, made an offer to acquire Black Berry for .7 billion (at .00 per share).

Following the announcement, Black Berry announced an acceptance of the offer provisionally but it would continue to seek other offers until November 4, 2013.

The first BB10 powered device was the Black Berry Z10, which was followed by other all-touch and keyboard-equipped models; including the Black Berry Q10, Black Berry Classic, Black Berry Passport, and the Black Berry Leap.
