Mformation puts patent squeeze on BlackBerry

Mformation Technologies, which specialises in handset management software is suing Research In Motion on the grounds of patent infringement, reports Reuters.

Mformation, which is based in New Jersey, said in a statement, 'After refusing to license Mformation's disclosed systems and software, RIM modified its BlackBerry software to include Mformation's patented systems and methods of remote management,' Mformation said.

RIM had nothing to say to Reuters on the subject.
