Nokia Announced about its Completion of Scalado acquisition
Today, Nokia, the world’s leading manufacturer of mobile devices made announcements regarding the fact that it has completed the acquisition of all technologies as well as all the intellectual property from Scalado. Scalado is a Sweden based company that prepares and establishes imaging technology and as a matter of fact and part of the contract, nearly 50 imaging experts will be sent to Nokia from Scalado.
Well, this is one of Nokia’s great acquisitions because this is likely to give back the headship in imaging and the Finnish mobile maker will be able to apply some innovations of Scalado on its Lumia smartphones powered by Windows Phone OS. Scalado is accorded with some efficient imaging essentials such as the face zoom and accompanies the aptitude to capture images just before and after a user triggers the shutter. This gives a good image and it also facilitates with another feature that enables one to eradicate unwanted elements from an image.
The executive vice president of Smart Devices at Nokia, Jo Harlow said “We believe that this acquisition will strengthen Nokia’s leading position in mobile imaging and provide us with a great opportunity to create even better imaging products and applications,” he added “We welcome the skilled and passionate professionals from Scalado to Nokia and are excited to have them work with the rest of our talented and dedicated imaging experts to bring world-class imaging solutions to our Nokia Lumia smartphones. The Nokia team is already responsible for many leading innovations in mobile imaging and, together with the experts from Scalado, we aim at astonishing the world with new, outstanding imaging experiences.”
The technology of Scalado is being put in use by most smartphone makers and has been imposed into the upcoming BlackBerry 10 platform of the Research in Motion. Scalado has its plans and technologies well-maintained and it will keep honoring the present license contracts. However, the future innovations of the company are likely to be put in use by the Finnish mobile maker Nokia.
