Yes, there is an injunction and has been for over 2 years. Did you ever wonder why all the "World" versions of the Nokia 6822 have the blackberry client, but the "North America" version does not (unless flashed with the software)? Same with the Sony Ericsson P910 -- some of the world versions have it, the NA version does not. The injunction says they cannot sell non-RIM devices in the United States with blackberry software. I'm guessing that NPT attempted to get an injunction against RIM selling any devices with the software in the US, but the courts probably determined that it was vital to RIM's survival to allow them to at least sell their own.
Did you notice that Nokia was advertising the 9300 on Cingular back last Spring during the NBA finals? Now it's December and no 9300 yet. Cingular has been forced to delay this device indefinately due to this injunction. The 9300 that Cingular was going to release was going to have the blackberry software.
