I have struggled to think of how to phrase this one but it is something I needed to say.Increasingly, we have seen clients who have applied for U.
One aspect of the Apple iPhone that I can't stand is the lack of quickly viewable notifications and I am actually very surprised that Apple doesn't have a better system in place on the device. Then again, I think the notification system for most mobile operating systems can be improved. On the iPhone, the notifications appear for a few seconds and then disappear. You then see a notification indicator on the text messages, email, and phone icons, but you have to go into each application and sometimes you may not even have that application on the visible "home screen". According to MacRumors Apple has filed a patent application for a cool new notification screen. It is a bit strange that a patent would be needed for something like this that even basic feature phones already use in some manner.
A new BlackBerry Patent app just published today would make it easier than it currently is to generate emails containing invites for future meetings from the BlackBerry Calendar.Then, the technology would also provide recipients with an email interface they can reply to the recipient with.
Ever go thru a list of incoming BlackBerry emails, repeatedly scrolling down until you find that message with the all-important attachment.Well, a new BlackBerry Patent application entitled System, Method and User Interface For Searching For Messages With Attachments On A Mobile Device proposes to make this task easier.

A strategic partnership between Microsoft and HP may force the Blackberry maker to 'revise its business model'
A workaround by Research In Motion, designed to avoid infringing patents held by intellectual property company NTP, is simply a negotiating tactic to help the BlackBerry maker settle out of court, according to analyst group Gartner.In December, Gartner advised its clients to halt all mission critical deployments of RIM's BlackBerry e-mail devices because of a legal battle that could see a judge effectively shut down the company's United States (US) operations.
BlackBerry users shouldn't worry about the ongoing litigation with U.S. patent holding company NTP too much now the RIM has publicly announced a workaround if an injunction shuts down U.S. sales and service of the popular handheld email device. Mac users will soon have a new way to make the BlackBerry a little more Mac-like...
If Research In Motion survives its patent dispute with NTP in the United States it will most likely have to repeat the saga with Visto, which claims to have an equally strong case against the BlackBerry maker.The long running battle between RIM and NTP seems to be close to conclusion with some analysts expecting the companies to reach a settlement to ensure a judge does not close down RIM's US operations.
As potential BlackBerry shutdown looms, Visto takes fellow RIM rival to court and asks for injunction on GoodLink software.
Being prosecuted for patent infringement may be the most pressing problem facing mobile email company RIM but issues with its fundamental business model may prove more serious in the long term
