Research In Motion (RIMM -9.3%), hammered thanks to bearish comments from Doug Kass and Gene Munster, is also being sued for patent infringement by chipmaker NXP (NXPI). NXP alleges RIM's phones and tablets infringe patents related to design and data transmission, and is seeking royalties and triple damages. An IP consultant speculates RIM might try to settle quickly to keep the suit from complicating sale talks.

    Wow, Nokia (Microsoft) HP, Nokia, RIMM, LG, Sony, Dell etc all casualities of Apple's dominance in the smart phone industry. What is he smoking? Sorry, playbook or Kindle for $200 is by far a way better choice. Most people use tablets for social networks, music, video and reading. Why would anyone with half a brain pay 3x the amount to achieve the same utility? (happiness for those who don't understand economics). Sooner or later people will get it. Hum, I can do everything I am doing and save $400 a year? Wow, maybe I wont need food stamps!
