RIM does have a working workaround. There's a leaked article describing exactly how it works somewhere in this forum. However, it is not as good as the original technology. So it is the best to keep the orginal design in the interest of people. It is unfortunate that some of the money we pay goes to NTP's pockets, but i think we still need to continue to support company like RIM because they did this settlement for the interest of people. Unlike NTP who just sits there and tries to squeeze every penny out of RIM. They could've settled for 450 million, but ended up getting 612.5. and I'm sure the reason why RIM didn't provide more info on the workaround is because of legal issues. maybe there'll be a patent for this workaround showing up at the patent office... I can never switch to a treo, especially when microsoft is putting their OS on it...
