    RIM buys you for $100??? Million .... 13 patents issued in the last year, the last one July 3, 2012:
    Hybrid techniques for antenna retuning utilizing transmit and receive power information - Patent # 8213886 - PatentGenius

    Good - Bad - Top Secret - Soon - Never - Say something!!!
    Don't worry about spreading rumours .... 90% of the info about RIM is dead wrong anyway.

    This is a small company with an unsexy product. Dont expect to ever hear what they are working on. It will show up in a phone you buy one day and you wont even know about it because it doesnt matter to the end user.

    Wireless devices have become prevalent throughout society. As users demand more mobility, there is a tremendous requirement for decreasing power consumption and thereby increasing battery life. Further, many wireless devices may transmit on aplurality of carrier frequencies and include circuits dealing with several frequency bands of operation and may receive and transmit at varying power levels. In wireless applications, the transmitted power is much higher than the received power and to perform the retuning of a mismatched antenna or matching network, power measurement must be performed.

    Thus, there is a strong need for techniques for antenna retuning utilizing transmit and receive power information.
