RIM Teams Up With Microsoft; PlayBook Coming ‘Very Soon’ - Businessweek

An interesting twist for RIM

Research In Motion Ltd. is teaming up with Microsoft Corp. to handle the growing amount of data its customers are using on mobile devices and said it plans to release its BlackBerry PlayBook tablet “very soon.”

The Microsoft partnership is designed to make it easier for customers to use what’s known as cloud computing, or servers offsite that store data and can be accessed over the Internet, said Jim Tobin, a RIM senior vice president. Microsoft will take over management of some RIM customer information under the deal.
