RedNova - Motorola Teams Up With Microsoft in Smart Attack on Nokia

RedNova - Motorola Teams Up With Microsoft in Smart Attack on Nokia: "Microsoft and giant U.S. phonemaker Motorola have joined forces to try to wrest the smartphone market -- the lucrative business end of the mobile sector -- from their European competitor Nokia.
The Business has learned that Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer and Motorola's new boss Ed Zander will spearhead their attack with a new generation of phones capable of putting the Microsoft desktop on the mobile screen.
'We see a coming together of IT and telephony crystallised by Ed Zander's appointment, which marks a significant deepening of the relationship between Microsoft and Motor-ola,' said Pieter Knook, senior vice-president Microsoft Mobile."
