Adding SpinVox’s call-centre technology and know-how to an existing product/service configuration will make a lot of sense to quite a few companies.
One of my favourite mobile analysts, John Strand, is quoted in Mobile Today magazine thus:
John Strand of Strand Consults said: Ã¢â‚¬ËœThere is a lot of consolidation going on and no doubt players like Spinvox are typical acquisition targets. They have an interesting technology and a nice user base, and different players will be interested.’Strand said names in the frame include Nokia, Nokia Siemens, Alcatel Solutions, Ericsson and even RIM.
I could imagine RIM augmenting it’s existing service offering with some kind of SpinVoxian facility.
One thing’s for sure though, the acquiring party will do well not to retain the brand.
