Is Microsoft Going to Be the Next RIMM?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and technology analyst Evan Niu discuss topics around the investing world.

Going into the year, we see the market for mobile software clearly dominated by two companies -- Apple and Google -- with Research In Motion trailing as a distant third. Recently at the Consumer Electronics Show, Microsoft unveiled its most serious attempt yet as a legitimate challenger. Two of the Motley Fool's technology analysts sit down to see whether Mr. Softy's latest offering stands a chance in this booming tech space, or whether it also seems poised to head the way of RIMM.

Microsoft is riding the revolution. However, the company is just one way to play this amazing opportunity for technology investors. The Motley Fool has a just released free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a "hidden" component play inside mobile phones that's also absolutely dominating the exploding tech market in China. Inside the report we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, but you can be among the first to access this just-released report by clicking here -- it's free.
