Microsoft finishes ‘cool, fun’ Danger deal

Microsoft has finally completed its buy of smartphone software maker Danger. Now part of the Redmond fold, Danger will be part of the Premium Mobile Experiences team, a group within the Mobile Communications Business of the Entertainment and Devices Division at Microsoft.

Apparently, according to Microsoft, acquiring Danger will let it “deliver cool, new, fun mobile experiences”. Cool and fun aren’t words I’d associated with Windows Mobile in a million years – can you be fun if you’re part of a team in a unit within a unit within a unit – but fingers crossed Danger can do something about making Windows Mobile a little bit more intuitive and, who knows, maybe take Microsoft out of its business mobile straightjacket.
