In what can only be seen as the international business equivalent of a raspberry, China Unicom announced its own mobile push email service called the Redberry. CU hopes to lure local Chinese businesses with its lower princing and blatant disregard for brand ownership. Less than $1USD a month for 5 megabytes of data on its new pricing plan versus up to $64USD for an unlimited data plan (in Hong Kong) sounds pretty tempting. We'll soon see how RIM enjoys being on the non-business end of a lawsuit.
