Nokia acquires Dopplr
Nokia on Monday said it has acquired Dopplr. The deal gives the phone designer access to Dopplr's social location service, which lets users share each other's trips and recommended places at each stop, such as museums and restaurants. Nokia didn't provide the financial terms of the deal or say when it expected the deal to finish.
The company vows that it won't interrupt the existing Dopplr service, including on other mobile platforms. The smaller firm has lately had a native iPhone app available and should keep that app available in the near future.
