RIM sues Samsung over Black

by Brian Turner


Research in Motion (RIM) – the company behind the iconic Blackberry – is taking Samsung to court after the rival company released rival products, branded with “black” in their name.

Proceedings were filed after Samsung released two products targeted at the same high-end markets as the Blackberry.

The BlackJack, and Black Carbon, are both smart phones released by Samsung.

However, RIM contends that the use of “black” in their name is a wilful attempt to try and confuse the well-known Blackberry brand with Samsung’s own newer products.

Well, let’s just see if consumers could become possibly confused – below, 3 different series of Blackberry, and 1 Blackjack:
