Not even close.
In almost every thinkable sense, the IBM Simon
was the world's first smartphone, sold in US between August of 1994 and March 1995.
First BlackBerrys were two way pagers, not phones. First BlackBerry you could call as a smartphone was introduced 2003, so BlackBerry joined the smartphone rally quit late.
