BlackBerry phones are the invention of Research in Motion (RIM), a company founded by Mike Lazaridis and Douglas Fregin in 1984. The company introduced its wireless handheld in 2000. Although the BlackBerry phone is a good phone, even it can accidentally take a swim in a toilet or a sink. When this happens, you need to dry it out. One of these ways is to use rice.
