Toronto-based Viigo built a great mobile application that brings you online content such as news, sports, entertainment, weather, markets or any RSS feeds to your BlackBerry and Windows Mobile device. Today, CEO Mark Ruddock stated the company has now become part of RIM. On the company website he wrote:
“Viigo is excited to announce that our company is now part of Research In Motion (RIM).
Our team has joined RIM’s global organization and will continue to bring our expertise in BlackBerry application development and real-time content delivery to the BlackBerry platform. The Viigo for BlackBerry app will also continue to be available for download through BlackBerry App World.
I’d like to personally thank the deal teams on both sides for their hard work and dedication over the past few months in bringing this transaction to a close.
To the Viigo Team – a very special thanks to all of you for helping to build such an exciting product, and a wonderful company. We’ve arrived at this point today because of you.”
Congrats to everyone at Viigo!
