RIM makes nice with litigator, uses their predictive text patent


Shake HandsRIM has quietly come to agreeable terms with Eatoni, who were in legal disputes with RIM over a predictive text technology in ambiguous keyboards (read: SureType). The patent in question helps devices chose words to be typed based both on ergonomics and the context of the word. Under the settlement, RIM has backed off on its countersuit against Eatoni, and will now be working with them to implement the technology in future BlackBerrys.
