Motorola, Microsoft take on BlackBerry

In what has been described as an aggressive push towards dethroning Research In Motion (RIM), Motorola and Microsoft have formed an alliance to take on BlackBerry.

A Globe and report says RIM is unconcerned about Motorola's move to take the basic design of its Razr slim phone and build a BlackBerry-like communications device called Q that delivers e-mail and other data on-the-go, using new Windows mobile software from Microsoft.

The report says the Q device, which Motorola says it plans to ship in the first quarter of 2006, is one of many hitting the market, but hopes to take advantage of corporate customers that like Microsoft's new Windows mobile software because it eliminates the need to run extra servers inside an organisation to serve data to BlackBerry devices.
