Blackberry fate to be decided in a month


— 11:29 AM on February 25, 2006

The Research In Motion (RIM) Blackberry handheld e-mail device has been given a 30-day grace period before its possible ban from the US market, according to The Register. NTP, Inc. sued RIM after claiming that the company's Blackberry product infringed on its patents. RIM was found guilty in 2004 by the United States District Court and was ordered to stop sales of the Blackberry, but the injunction had been delayed by RIM's appeal. The 30-day lapse could give RIM time to deploy its workaround for the patent issue and allow the devices to continue functioning.
