BlackBerrry maker RIM and Nokia agree patent deal

Mobile phone manufacturers Research in Motion (RIM) and Nokia have come to a legal agreement regarding a patent dispute.

All pending actions will be withdrawn once the BlackBerry creator makes a one-off payment to the Finnish firm.

RIM also has to make royalty payments to its competitor in order to use its protected intellectual property.

Chief intellectual property officer at Nokia Paul Melin said: “We are very pleased to have resolved our patent licensing issues with RIM and reached this new agreement, while maintaining Nokia's ability to protect our unique product differentiation.”

He could be referring to innovative and exclusive technologies like PureView – exclusive camera capabilities found in the latest Lumia 920 high-end handset.

The 8.7-megapixel snapper has a Carl Zeiss lens which helps lower the chance of blurry images, which is also facilitated by the optical image stabilisation technology.

This mobile phone uses the latest Windows Phone 8 operating system and comes in a range of bright colours.
