The firm says RIM has infringed two patents with its BlackBerry smartphone and its management software. There was no other details on what was being infringed or what Mformation was hoping to get out of the suit.

Mformation said.

"Mformation provides mobile device management solutions to mobile operators and enterprises around the globe. We firmly believe in the importance and value of innovation, and have invested significantly for many years in developing our industry leading device management technology.

A world with Microsoft, without Apple! Zune would control the 73% of the MP3 player market, 99% of the OS market (considering Linux), the browsers don't change much, the whole world would be all PC!

But we can but dream.
