If NTP wins, RIM patches, service goes on as usual

Despite the ongoing patent infringement case against Research in Motion (RIM) by NTP, today, RIM announced that regardless of the case's outcome, it will strive to have its services stay active for its customers.

According to RIM, an update has been prepared for the communication infrastructure that the BlackBerrys use to communicate to each other and to PCs. Called Multi-Mode Edition, the update from RIM will change the underlying code for the BlackBerry back-end software. According to RIM:
  • Users will not see any changes in the way they use the BlackBerry device.
  • Service providers and system administrators will not see any changes in BlackBerry service or administration.
  • Application developers will not be required to change existing Java applications.
RIM says the courts have not made a decision on an injunction yet but it says that customers and service providers need not worry.

"We are going to continue to work with them to make sure they understand the reality of the Internet.  A lot of these people don't have Ph.Ds, and they don't have a degree in computer science." -- RIM co-CEO Michael Lazaridis
