Microsoft and RIM sign patent licensing agreement

Microsoft and Research In Motion (RIM) have signed a licensing agreement allowing RIM to incorporate Microsoft’s Extended File Allocation Table (exFAT) technology into certain BlackBerry devices.

exFAT is a file system that facilitates large files for use in audiovisual media. Microsoft has reached patent licensing agreements over exFAT with other companies including Sharp, Panasonic, Sanyo, Sony and Canon.

Microsoft says it’s entered into more than 1,100 licensing agreements since it launched its licensing program in December 2003.
