Blackberry takes another hit

While RIM suffered two legal setbacks last week (the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia denied RIM’s motion to enforce an agreement with NTP and also refused a RIM motion to stop the court proceedings in NTP’s patent lawsuit against it while the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office re-examines NTP’s patents), this week it took a hit from Gartner Group when that organization issued a research brief alerting current and prospective enterprise RIM customers to “stop or delay all mission-critical BlackBerry deployments and investments in the platform until RIM’s legal position is clarified.”
