Nokia and Dopplr announced today that Nokia has acquired Dopplr Oy, a privately held mobile service provider for international travelers. Dopplr has a team of seven people with offices in London and Helsinki. The Dopplr team brings to Nokia’s Services unit unique know-how in creating internet-based communities and showing their journeys, experiences and tastes collectively on the web.
Dopplr is a service for smart travelers. Dopplr members share personal and business travel plans privately with their networks, and highlight interesting places to stay, eat and explore in cities around the world. The acquisition does not change the current Dopplr service which is available at Dopplr.com and on platforms where Dopplr is integrated, like Flickr and Twitter.
