Wow. After taking a battering in the old Federal Court this week, RIM finally caught a break in its patent fight against NTP. Though NTP claims it holds the patents for Blackberry software, the Patent Office has now received information claiming a Norwegian firm was actually the first patent filers on this technology. But don't get your hopes up too high. This isn't final and NTP still gets to file a response. It may be months before we get any solid information on the future of our Blackberry service.
