Motorola Licenses RIM Technology

Under a new licensing pact, Motorola devices can connect to RIM's BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Research In Motion Ltd. on Wednesday announced a technology licensing deal with Motorola Inc.

This is the latest agreement in RIMs BlackBerry Connect licensing program, which gives handheld computer and phone makers the ability to connect their devices to RIMs BlackBerry Enterprise Server—server-side software that sits behind a customers firewall and provides access from remote devices to corporate data. Previously only RIMs own BlackBerry devices could connect to the server, but last year the company introduced the licensing program in hopes of boosting software sales.
