Research In Motion licences technology from Microsoft to better handle HD video, large file transfers
Research in Motion, the Canadian company making the BlackBerry, has signed a licensing agreement with Microsoft over exFAT, a system that would allow faster and more efficient transfer of media files between devices.

The system is expected to arrive as part of BlackBerry 10, RIM’s mobile operating system expected to make a debut on mass market smartphones launching around January 2013.

RIM’s newly acquired system "facilitates large files for audiovisual media and enables seamless data portability and an easy interchange between desktop PCs and other electronic devices," Microsoft explained in a press release.

The biggest question with the BlackBerry 10 release is whether RIM will manage to overcome its position of a company more friendly to businesses than users. The new system will allow RIM to better handle HD video and have its devices communicate easier with Windows-based computers.

“RIM is girding itself for the BlackBerry 10 launch and future BlackBerry 10 sales and it’s defending itself against any potential legal issues ... Most importantly, it allows users to more easily move around large files,” Kevin Restivo, a mobile device analyst with global research firm IDC said.
