RIM and Samsung reach agreement over BlackJack

You may remember our post a while ago about the lawsuit that RIM, makers of the BlackBerry, filed against Samsung over the alleged trademark infringement in the use of the name BlackJack.

Apparently RIM and Samsung have reached an agreement. In a press release yesterday RIM said that the settlement includes “immediate provisions for the protection of RIM’s valuable trademarks,” and that it “does include limitations on use of the Blackjack trademark, withdrawal of the trademark application for Blackjack”.

I’m sure this whole situation is a big reason why Samsung chose to release the BlackJack as the SGH-i600 here in Europe.

Inside the HTC X7500

Post edited/removed due to risk of possible action.

Well if you blinked then you missed it! This story was only online for a few minutes before I was contacted and asked to remove all images and references to the insides of the HTC X7500.

I wish to preserve the relationship I have with HTC and have duly removed the content as requested, however I cannot and will not release any details regarding my source. I hope to bring the post back post-launch!

The HTC X7500 is expected to be officially unveiled at 3GSM next week.
