BlackBerry’s AGM on 9th July saw the company changing its name formally from Research In Motion Limited to BlackBerry Limited. The planned name change was first announced in January this year.
Thorsten Heins, President and CEO of BlackBerry, said “The name change to BlackBerry from Research In Motion comes at a pivotal moment in our company’s history. BlackBerry changed the world when the first products were introduced in 1999. Today, we are charting a new course in mobile computing, creating new products and services under an integrated, branded organization. Our new name delivers on our iconic brand’s reputation for keeping people moving and productive in an ever connected world.”
BlackBerry was originally founded in 1984.
