WSJ.com - Microsoft, Palm Unite to Fight BlackBerry

WSJ.com - Microsoft, Palm Unite to Fight BlackBerry: "Does a pact between Microsoft Corp. and Palm Inc. mean bye-bye BlackBerry?
Microsoft's battle with search company Google Inc. grabs headlines, but the Redmond, Wash., software giant has quietly redoubled its efforts to compete with Research in Motion Ltd., the Canadian upstart that sparked a wireless revolution with its popular BlackBerry hand-held email device.
Microsoft and Palm yesterday penned a deal that will put the Windows Mobile software on Palm's Treo 700, the new combination cellphone and hand-held computer. The device, which will debut next year, will run on Verizon Wireless's highspeed mobile network."
