BREAKING: Research in Motion Acquires Cellmania with App World Implications

Comment

cellmania

Cellmania is a company based out of Mountain View, California, that specializes in providing infrastructure for digital rights management of downloaded content onto mobile phones, subscription billing, time and location based content management and billing integration onto customer bills. Basically, if you have an application or mobile content, you go to Cellmania to help with distribution over a large network of partners that you may not have had access to. Today, the company has been acquired by Research in Motion and according to the company, the acquisition is to “help strengthen RIM’s focus on mobile content and the BlackBerry ecosystem.” Perhaps there will be some integration with App World and Cellmania’s distribution partners, or perhaps this acquisition is for the human resources and development that could help App World. Either way, congratulations to the team at Cellmania on the acquisition.
