BlackBerry Sues Over Fruity Names

Gosh, nobody could have predicted this, given how rare intellectual property disputes have become lately: BlackBerry maker Research in Motion has sued LG Electronics, claiming that new phone models named Black Label, Strawberry and Black Cherry infringe on the BlackBerry name.

RIM earlier settled out of court with Samsung over similar charges relating to its BlackJack wireless thingie.

Motorola reportedly is reconsidering its plans for the new Red Currant and Tangelo models.
