Contract? What contract? So this isn't a patent dispute, it's a contractual dispute.
I'm guessing they had a contract regarding use of each others patents. The silly part about this is that Nokia's main competitors are the Open Hand Set Alliance (Android) and Apple, it isn't RIM. RIM may not even be in business in 5 years time. If RIM is swallowed up by Apple or Microsoft then Nokia would get almost nothing because they will just say "FRAND".

Nokia (Microsoft) is fighting from the bottom; it is easier to stalk the weaker prey. It would be bad for them if RIM actually does well with BB10.

Every person who uses a blackberry does so because of the physical keyboard. RIM even ran a whole series of commercials touting the superiority of typing on a physical keyboard... And now, what are we presented? A full touchscreen device.

If you actually did your research you would see that RIM is releasing BOTH a touchscreen and physical keyboard model.

The L series is the full touchscreen device and the N series is the physical keyboard with touchscreen device.
