    I'm still digging through the list for anything insightful. Though this is 90 patents of over several thousand that BB/RIM have filed. Question I have: is it the cream of the crop of BB IP or just the tip of one company's junk is anothers treasure? And what does this mean for OMs ambitions?

    No very uncommon when a company closes a division they sell off what they can before they become obsolete. Motorola did the same thing. Its cheaper to sell it off and grab cash than keep them and have to police them all the time.

    In my opinion, this list does not represent the patents Chen is referring to. First, in the earnings call, he spoke of a large part of the 38,000 patents that were up for sale, not just the few. Quote Chen: "Well, it’s a major portion of our portfolio".

    Second, BlackBerry is in negotiations with an North American party. Quote: "This quarter, we entered into an exclusive negotiation with a North American party for the sale of the portion of the company’s patent portfolio primarily related to mobile devices, messaging, and wireless networking."

    You are talking about the future and current negotiations. This was the previous sale back in January

    That is hard to see where it showed up in the earnings.... so didn't amount to much. But is strange they pulled these out....
