BellSouth president wants ‘Blackberry’ case resolved

Comments

The president of BellSouth Operations said Monday in Gainesville he wants the “Blackberry” patent case resolved soon.

“We don’t have an opinion one way or another who’s right about the patent issue, our desire is that it just get solved,” Frieson said.

Frieson added that BellSouth markets the “Blackberry”, it’s popular and BellSouth is very concerned about continued sales. Frieson said he hopes that ruling will head off any inconvenience to owners and users.

“There’s some functionality you will actually lose on existing Blackberries,” Frieson said.

Frieson said the devices would still function even if the current patent holder loses the case, but the company is withholding details on that for now.
