Unhappy RIM Testimony - Workaround Rollout

Please Login to Remove!

I was reading through the article on the USAToday website convering the RIM/NTP "discussion" on Friday when I came across this little snippet of information...

RIM says it has a workaround that will keep BlackBerrys operating if it loses in court. But RIM testified Friday that it would take 2 million man-hours to implement. That's about a half-hour for each of the 4.3 million BlackBerrys in use. A company with 500 BlackBerry users would need a month to upgrade them all, estimates tech analyst Ken Dulaney at researcher Gartner.
Anyone have any details on this or is this just a worst case scenario?
