Good Just Keeps Getting Better
RIM outlaw number one, Good Technology, has been busy improving their product, announcing more device support and funding. Today they announced version 1.5 of their GoodLink enterprise syncing platform. They also have deals with PalmSource and Microsoft to develop GoodLink clients for Palm OS and PocketPC. The company has also raised $14 million in addition to their original $60 million. Despite having its own hardware Good is hedging its bets and trying to support all the leading mobile device platforms, which indicates that they are primarily about software. RIM on the other hand seems to be focused on protecting their hardware business. As Bill Gates realized 20 years ago, the big money is in the software, not the hardware.
