Blackberry maker, NTP settle patent dispute for $612.5M – Mar. 3, 2006:

BlackBerry maker Research in Motion said Friday it agreed to pay $612.5 million to patent holding company NTP to settle a long-running dispute that had threatened to shut down the popular wireless e-mail service for its 3 million users.

That’s a tidy sum. But it appears to be over. Although they’ve settled before.

The real question is this: is Apple really comfortable acquiescing mobile sync to RIM, Microsoft, and smaller players?
