Microsoft to Acquire Danger Inc

Posted by Mike Temporale in "Smartphone News" @ 10:30 AM

"Microsoft Corp. today announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire Danger Inc., the company responsible for the software and services powering many popular consumer handsets. The acquisition will align Danger’s nearly 10 years of expertise in the mobile consumer space with Microsoft’s vision to provide innovative and compelling mobile experiences to a growing base of customers."

Microsoft has announced that they will be acquiring Danger. Danger is the maker of the popular HipTop device (better known as the T-Mobile SideKick in the US). It’s an interesting purchase when you consider that to date, Microsoft has not sold devices or their mobile operating system directly to the consumer. This could be a great step forward in allowing them to have more control from the start to finish.
