BlackBerry wins patent suit
The suit started out involving six patents, but half of those were dropped. Had BlackBerry lost, the decision could have played havoc with the company's financials considering that NXP would have been entitled to triple damages had it won. The trial began on March 24th and the jury required just one day of deliberation before reaching a decision.
While BlackBerry had no comment, NXP said it was disappointed and would start "investigating all options for appeal."

BlackBerry can't afford to lose any money atm.. If the appeals go through, time to cross the fingers once again.

Why? because I've read the article, then came up with what I've posted above after reading it.

Good job, BlackBerry! Now you can focus on more pressing matters.

If they would have lost this....I believe this would have been it for BB. Reminds me some tech case years ago. Whoever it was, after they lost the lawsuit....they basically disappeared a few years later.
