NEW YORK, USA: Klausner Technologies, Inc. announced that it has filed suit against Research in Motion Ltd for patent infringement.
The lawsuit is based on the recent unveiling by RIM of certain new 3G “BlackBerry Bold 9700” mobile phones which use Klausner Technologies' Visual Voicemail patented technology. Various Blackberry models with the Visual Voicemail feature are already covered under Klausner Technologies Visual Voicemail patent licenses granted to mobile operators.

The suit has been filed in federal court in the Eastern District of Texas by the California law firm of Dovel & Luner.
