Motorola purchases RIM competitor


motologo.jpgBig pockets could mean for big results (we’re sort of hoping not). News from the Motorola company has the RAZR-pushers scooping up Good Technology, the provider of push email delivery and synchronisation of all Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Domino functions, including e-mail, calendar and contacts. Not to mention they’re one of RIM’s biggest competitors.

Good Technology’s software and service offerings have been chosen by more than 12,000 enterprises around the world, and, according to Motorola, “Good Technology’s highly reliable, secure connectivity platform offers the potential to power applications beyond email while extending to customers beyond the enterprise.”

The acquisition is expected to be put through and implemented in early 2007. RIM should have an exciting year.
