Nokia to buy travel social network Dopplr for more than €10 million
According to TechCrunch, Nokia is ready to pay between €10 million ($14.7 million) and €15 million ($22.1 million) for Dopplr, which is currently run by CEO Marko Ahtisaari, an ex-Director of Design Strategy at Nokia.
Dopplr helps users by making their “travel planning smarter” and allowing them to share travel plans, find tips and get travel advices.
The company’s acquisition will probably allow Nokia to further enhance its own services, including Nokia Maps.
Somehow related: Dopplr has a free iPhone app (see above), called The Social Atlas app for iPhone and available here.
