Research In Motion Changes Its Name to BlackBerry
Research In Motion (RIM) will now operate around the world under the iconic name BlackBerry, effective immediately.
“This change from Research In Motion to BlackBerry comes at a defining moment in our company’s history,” said Heins.

As we launch BlackBerry 10 around the world, now is the right time to adopt the iconic BlackBerry name.”
