    Motorola turns sour & tries to sue RIM as they slip to 3rd in Market

    Advertisement



    RIM and rival Motorola have sued each other over what they say are patent infringements for technology used in their mobile phones.

    RIM's Countersuit claims that Motorola's response to the "declining fortunes" of its handset business can been seen in dramatic increases in royalties being charged to RIM for certain patented technology. Motorola "is demanding exorbitant royalties ... for patents that Motorola claims are essential to various standards for mobile wireless telecommunications and wireless computing that RIM practices."


    RIM alleges that Motorola is infringing on the Canadian company's patents and demanding "exorbitant" licensing fees, according to court documents. The civil action, filed on Saturday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, alleges that Motorola infringed on a number of patents held by RIM.

    Mmmm will motorola go the way of Palm. If they spent more time updating their handsets and less time complaining that erveryone else is better they would not be in this mess. How long has it been we have seen a NEW phone from them.

    The new Sidekick Slide is manufactured by Motorola. I've laid my hands on it once and I hated it.

    On the T-Mobile side, the Z3 and W490 have been real hits but the rest of the new line up has not flown the way they expected it to. I think primarily it is because they want too much money for their handsets still.

    Well another reason is the crappy OS which feels is so outdated. And the fact they have the v3r v3t v3i and the list goes on and on....
