In case you have not heard of NTP it is the patent holding company that went after RIM in 2006 with a similar suit in which RIM settled for $612 million. After an appellate court found that NTP had legal grounds for the suit they have moved on now filing against Google, Apple, Microsoft, Motorola, LG and HTC. The suit is based on patents that NTP hold on wireless email which come on now everyone uses these days on their phones.
Since RIM settled and now along with Nokia are licensing with NTP they are not named in the new suit along with Palm whose current suit is on hold. With the odds stacked up against them none of the companies named have released any statements but if and when they do we will keep you up to date.
I don’t know about you but I use my phone for e-mail constantly and would be lost without it.
