The company filed in the Southern District of Florida against the blackbetrry maker.

The suit against RIM claims infringement of U.S. Patent No. 6,260,168 related to Bluetooth technologies. In the filing, Wi-LAN alleges that RIM's PlayBook tablet and a many of its smartphones, including the Bold, Torch, Pearl and Storm utilize technology that infringes on its patent.
