I never really understood RIM’s relationship with Kodak. They had Kodak showing off their wireless printing app and printer at RIM’s booth at CES back in January of 2010 just days before they slapped RIM and Apple with a patent infringement lawsuit. That BlackBerry printing app was supposed to ship in March with the ESP Office 6150 AiO printer with wireless printing. The printer finally came out in June but the BlackBerry printing app was still “Coming Soon.”
Now a little over a year later I noticed that Kodak did release a iPhone and iPod Touch printing app but all mention of the BlackBerry app is gone from the product description. The press release still mentions it on Kodak’s website but thats about it.
Anybody sad that Kodak is not releasing their BlackBerry app? Maybe now that they lost the initial determination by the ITC they will bring it back? Weirder things have happened but it looks like suing RIM for patent infringement is not conducive to a business relationship… 🙂 Makes me wonder who cut this off.
