Nokia To Buy Oz Communications and their Mobile IM/Email Service

Published by at

Nokia continues to increase their portfolio of internet services with the upcoming acquisition of Oz Communications (via MoCoNews and others). The Canadian firm specialises in providing both IM and email alongside a basic social network to operators including Verizon and Sprint. The obvious home for this platform is inside Ovi; the deal should be completed by the end of the year so we may see where Oz ends up in early 2009.
