Cingular, RIM targeting Moto's Q

Cingular Wireless and Research In Motion (RIM) said they will make the new BlackBerry 7130c handset and service available at the same prices as Verizon's Motorola Q, which just launched a few weeks ago. The new BB will run $200 and Cingular's service for the device will start at $30 a month. Similarly, the Q retails for $200 with a two-year service agreement. The service will run on the BlackBerry Internet Service, not the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, backed by Cingular's EDGE network. Cingular and RIM plan to make the latest BlackBerry offering commercially available in Cingular stores on June 12.
