In a rather short press release, Nokia notifies the general public (and reporters who like to read company sites late at night) that they have just finished their acquision of Berlin, Germany based startup Plazes. The deal was first announced on June 23rd of this year. And now it’s official.
According to Nokia, the Plazes acquisition will help them extend their context-based service offering with social presence and time-based activity planning features. Basically, they’re going to take all the things Plazes can do and enhance their work with it, all for the better.
Like their acquisition of NAVTEQ, expect this to further make Nokia’s mapping and navigation business continue to grow.
