Motorola to go 'behind the firewall' in 2012

Monday 2 January 2012 | 15:02 CET | Author: Maarten van Vliet | Market Commentary

Motorola can not make money using a free OS, but somehow you state that "RIM is in an awkward position". Everybody knows about the challenges RIM faced and faces, but at the end of the day RIM makes profit every quarter and Motorola doesn't, and had to be bought out. What exactly in this picture makes MOT remotely qualified to enter the enterprise market?
