RIM's attempt to placate Blackberry users by offering a bunch of free apps isn't going to satisfy those inclined to litigation.
In the late 70s, Kodak came out with an instant-print camera in direct competition with Polaroid (I had one). Polaroid sued for patent infringement, and eventually won. As a result, Kodak had to stop selling the cameras, and more importantly, stop selling the film, which made existing cameras useless. As compensation, Kodak, on its own, offered owners of the cameras something like (as I recall) $50 cash (I think that depended on which model of camera you'd purchased) and $50 worth of coupons for Kodak products. This didn't prevent a class-action suit, which was settled after a year or so. The settlement provided for an amount of cash, based on which model of camera you'd purchased, and $50 worth of coupons for Kodak products.
Such a deal.
