Microsoft is to acquire Sendit, a Swedish firm that develops software for digital cellular operators.
The acquisition was initially flagged by Microsoft president Steve Ballmer during his keynote at Supercomm last month (see VNU Newswire, 9 June, 1999). He said the purchase would give the Redmond giant a software research and development centre in Europe's Nordic region, which is widely recognised as the world's leading mobile communications market.
Sendit, established in 1994, produces the Internet Cellular Smart Access (ICSA) server which allows digital mobile operators to offer email and Internet access.
Said Mats Wennberg, regional director of Microsoft's Nordic region, "The Nordic countries are establishing themselves as the 'Wireless Valley' of the world."
