Under the terms of the agreement, Motorola will be able to connect specific mobile phones to BlackBerry services including support for both BlackBerry Enterprise Server and BlackBerry Web Client.
Additional details of the licensing agreement will be announced at a later time, RIM said.
Motorola, the world's second-largest mobile phone maker, joins Sony Ericsson, which in February signed a similar licensing agreement to provide BlackBerry connectivity for Sony Ericsson's P900 smart phones. Nokia, the market leader, has licensed Rim's technology since 2002.
