Earlier today we heard that Nokia have agreed the sale of their luxury mobile phone brand Vertu, and now Nokia has announced that they are acquiring mobile imaging specialist Scadalo.
Scadalo are developers of a range of imaging applications for mobile devices, and Nokia has been working with Scadalo for more than 10 years, and Scadalo have helped Nokia develop many of their mobile imaging applications.
“This is a great opportunity for many of our people to show their leadership in imaging and to continue to build its future,” said Håkan Persson, chief executive officer of Scalado AB. “Doing this as part of Nokia, already a leader in mobile imaging, will reinforce the strength of the technologies and competences developed at Scalado. We are very excited about this opportunity, which is a natural next step in our longstanding relationship with Nokia.”
There are no details on how much Nokia have paid for Scadlo, but we suspect imaging an photography on mobile devices will play a big part in Nokia’s future mobile phone and smartphone strategy.
