Phone.com To Acquire AtMotion
Phone.com, the pioneer of the Wireless Application Protocol,has made a stock offering worth approximately $285 million to
acquire AtMotion, a developer of voice portal technology.
Phone.com said it plans to integrate AtMotion's Internet
Voice Portal technology into the MyPhone personal portal and
the Up.Link Server Suite WAP 1.1 platform.
The goal of Phone.com, formerly known as Unwired Planet, is
to create a unified phone and PDA platform capable of
handling WAP, short message service, and enhanced circuit
voice capabilities such as unified messaging and voice
recognition. The resulting integrated product will compete in
part with products from vendors such as General Magic and
Wildfire. Phone.com picks up 40 employees with its
acquisition of AtMotion.
