A San Francisco jury piles on the woe for RIM (RIMM), ruling it must pay $147.2M in patent litigation to Mformation over a system that manages a wireless device over a cellular network. The total amount could rise, as it comprises an $8 royalty for every BlackBerry connected to RIM's enterprise server software, and doesn't cover future or foreign damages. RIM is looking to overturn the verdict.
