Google acquires Pushlife – A signal to the future

by Peter Young on April 12, 2011 · 0 comments

The Google acquisition bandwagon rolls on. Fresh from its acquisition of insurance aggregator Beat That Quote, Google has acquired mobile applications organisation Pushlife. Pushlife is a company founded in 2008 by ex-Research in Motion employee Raymond Reddy, The Pushlife service allows users to buy and synchronise music on their phones with music libraries on their PCs for both Blackberry and Android phones.

Estimates put the purchase price at circa $25 million however details of the purchase have not been officially released – and will see the Pushlife team join the Google Canada team. Just where this fits into Googles plans moving forward isnt quite clear yet – however rumour would suggest that Google have been talking to a number of record labels that would let people store music on the Internet for streaming to Web-connected devices.
