IPD file extension - BlackBerry backup (pre 2012)

What is ipd file? How to open ipd files?

The ipd file extension is associated with BlackBerry mobile phones and used in the past for backup purposes. At the beginning of 2012, the extension was replaced with bbb file extension for both Windows and Mac OS X Desktop software and the ipd backup file format was abandoned.

Blackberry handheld devices and phones have long been a favorite of the corporate executive but now with the release of a more mainstream multimedia capable mobile device in the Pearl and an aggressive advertising campaign, the BlackBerry is bound to become a more popular device with non corporate types as well.

The BlackBerry Desktop software creates a proprietary backup of the databases on the BlackBerry Handheld.
