Motorola looks to Good

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 11:22 AM

Motorola agreed to acquire privately held mobile software company Good Technology for an undisclosed sum, according to Reuters.

Good Technology is one of several companies that compete with Research in Motion's BlackBerry e-mail service. It also competes with Microsoft's Windows Mobile 5.0.

Motorola and Good Technology, which already have a business relationship on mobile messaging, said Good Technology's wireless messaging will boost its mobile computing capabilities and help increase its client base.

Right now, it seems that Motorola is a little behind when it comes to offering enterprise services. In the past, it has focused mainly on consumer devices, like the Razr and the recently released Krzr. In the past year, it has manufactured only one enterprise device -- the Motorola Q.

Contrast Motorola with HTC, the Taiwanese company that makes Windows Mobile devices, and it doesn't seem like much. HTC produces 10 to 15 enterprise devices a year.
