Nokia nabs another mobile OS: buys Smarterphone

By

Nokia has bought Norwegian mobile phone operating system developer Smarterphone, formerly known as Kvaleberg and whose OS previously went by the name of Mimira.

Smarterphone's venture capital backer, Ferd Capital announced the sale on 5 January saying it had been completed in November.

There has been no official statement from either Nokia or Smarterphone of the deal, which adds yet another OS to what seems to be an already overly large portfolio of mobile OS that Nokia claims to be committed to supporting.

In addition to its much publicised commitment to Microsoft's Windows Phone OS, Nokia - publicly at least - is still committed to Symbian, S40 and MeeGo.

Smarterphone claims that the software is optimised for devices in the $US25- $US75 price range - which Nokia presently addresses with its S40 OS.
