Following the acquisition, Viigo will continue to bring its “expertise in BlackBerry application development and real-time content delivery to the BlackBerry platform.” Moreover, the Viigo app for BlackBerry will still be available, for free, via BlackBerry App World.
Viigo’s best known product is its News & RSS application, but the company also develops other various modules related to Weather, Sports, Business & Finance, Social networks, Shopping, Podcasts, Politics, Flights & Travel, and Entertainment.
As it often happens in these cases, RIM (which should soon announce the new BlackBerry Pearl 9100) has not announced the financial details of the acquisition.
