Weekend Contest “Pick your favorite patent!”

Magmic Games

While the summer is notorious for being the dog-days of BlackBerry news, we’ve recently been getting the tell-tale signs from RIM that this fall will be an exciting time for CrackBerry addicts. What signs, you ask? Well the myriad of new patent applications, of course!

However, while we have received new hints at what future BlackBerrys will feature, many questions remain. Which, of the patents we have seen, will affect you as a BlackBerry user the most? Are you happy with RIM’s apparent focus on improving the functionality of core BlackBerry features, or do you want new features? Do you think that these patents are only a precursor to major announcements? Post a comment and let us know. The person with the best comment will receive 3 free Magmic games!

LAST WEEK’S WINNER was Craig E, who succinctly summarized what happens when his BlackBerry goes down: nothing.

    I can’t wait for the new Berry. I am excited! These patents are a great sign. I am waiting for the announcement.

    I’m more interested in the speaker port patent that they applied for:

    http://patimg1.uspto.gov/.piw?docid=US0D0525244&SectionNum=1&IDKey=E3D9C7B1EA4F

    Hook the BB up to external speakers and crank out some MP3′s!

    I don’t believe that any of those patents is really a great innovation!

    I just believe RIM is willing to minimize the risks to have a new NTP story!

    Like a lot of users, I’m interested to have a BlackBerry with features that are already available from other devices on the market.

    One of the one I’m really looking for is that my BlackBerry becomes an USB mass storage (of course if memory up to 1 GB is available)!
