RIM, Eatoni team up on new text keyboard technology

Just over two years ago, RIM and Eatoni were at each other's throats about a SureType predictive-text system, but these days, the two firms are pushing aside any lingering beef as they look to "develop a new text keyboard technology." Reportedly, the duo "signed an agreement in which Eatoni, which specializes in designing hardware and software for keyboards, would grant RIM a license to use its technology; RIM, in return, made an equity investment in Eatoni." Additionally, it was noted that both outfits mutually dismissed previous claims over patent infringement, but unfortunately, that's every bit of detail that we have for now.
