Nortel, RIM in wireless patent talks - source

(In U.S. dollars unless noted)

TORONTO, July 27 (Reuters) - BlackBerry maker Research In Motion RIM.TORIMM.O has held talks with Nortel Networks NRTLQ.PK about buying next-generation wireless patents that were not part of a $1.13 billion wireless asset sale over the weekend, a source familiar with the situation said on Monday.

On Saturday, Nortel sold a portfolio of CDMA and next-generation LTE wireless assets to Swedish telecom equipment maker Ericsson ERICb.ST. However, Nortel and RIM have held negotiations over other key patents related to the next-generation wireless business "for months," the source told Reuters.
