Openwave has completed its acquisition of messaging software company Magic4.
The US$82.6million purchase will give Openwave an increased sales presence in Europe and the Americas.
The company will integrate the Magic4 solution into its client software operation.
It claims the combined entity will be the largest provider of open standards-based client software for mass-market phones.
“The acquisition provides our manufacturer and operator customers the benefit of the two companies’ practices, ensuring timely delivery of data handsets with increasingly innovative services,” said Openwave’s president and ceo Don Listwin.
