In looking to improve our BlackBerry smartphone experience, RIM has just bought the Ireland based company NewBay in a $100 million dollars deal. So, what is NewBay?


NewBay develops software for use on mobile phones which enables users to create and share digital content such as pictures and videos, as well as updating social networks.

It signed deals for its software with a number of major networks including T-Mobile USA, Deutsche Telekom, Telefónica O2, France Telecom Orange, US Cellular, ATT, Telstra and Verizon.

It seems like we might see some improvement  in the way we share digital content. Let us hope we hear more about this soon, make sure to keep it locked to N4BB for more news! What do you think RIM is planning on doing with this new purchase?
