With the possibility of a court-ordered shutdown looming large, RIM has provided more details about the long-discussed workaround the company has come up with to keep the BlackBerry service up and running. According to the company, the workaround is a software update called BlackBerry MultiMode Edition, which can be downloaded and activated if service is suspended later this month. RIM says that MultiMode involves "significant underlying changes to the message delivery system" but that the switch should be transparent to customers. Which, of course, leads to at least one inevitable question: If RIM has a working solution that doesn't raise any patent issues, why not just roll it out now and be done with the whole matter?
