Motorola Purchases 280 North

Category: Announcements

I don’t usually post acquisition news on here, but I just wanted to congratulate 280 North, who we’ve covered on here many times and are fellow members of the Ajax community. 280 North produces the awesome Cappuccino language/framework, including the 280 Slides presentation web application. Techcrunch is reporting that Motorola has bought 280 North. From Motorola:

I can confirm that Motorola acquired 280 North earlier this summer. The transaction provides Motorola with specialized web-app engineering talent and technology that will help facilitate the continued expansion of Motorola’s application ecosystem. We believe 280 North will be instrumental in helping us continue to foster the Android ecosystem with innovative web-based technologies and applications. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

This feels like an odd fit to me.

Well if that isn’t another vote for web-tech on mobile, I don’t know what is.
