    I have been looking at articles about what RIM's position is on Nortel's patents. Some say that they are bidding, others say that RIM tried to buy Nortel and others have said that RIM has taken a seat on the sidelines to just watch what plays out.

    Which is it?

    the current bid is $900m

    wsj: A series of large tech companies and intellectual-property firms had been expected to make bids for the Nortel portfolio. But some industry executives and other observers said Googles bid was surprisingly large, and expressed doubt that others will top it.

    Eric Goldman, an intellectual property expert at Santa Clara University School of Law, said patent portfolios of Nortels size and value rarely come to market and that Googles bid has effectively shut out most non-practicing entities from competing in the auction.
