$845 per user

Computerworld reports, Analyst: Replacing lost BlackBerry service would cost $845 per person. Most people I talk to say this will never happen. But what if the the courts shut down BlackBerry's service as part of an ongoing patent dispute between RIM and NTP Inc.

There are more than 4 million BlackBerry users worldwide. That's a lot of BlackBerry's in anyone's book.

In the meantime, RIM has gone back to the Patent Office to invailidate NTP's patents and to make the court case moot.
