Motorola acquires location-based software company Aloqa

Motorola has acquired Aloqa, a company that develops location-based software. The myAloqa service uses a customer's location and contacts to tell them about places, events, bargains and other opportunities nearby. The company has recently passed one million downloads for its software application.

Aloqa is becoming part of the Motorola Mobility business unit. Its technology will enhance Motorola's MOTOBLUR interface, which delivers customized content to mobile device home screens and allows users to access social networks, email, news and favourite apps in the same place.

Christy Wyatt, corporate vice president of software and services product management for Motorola Mobility, said "Aloqa is an exciting addition to Motorola Mobility as its specialized engineering talent and location-tracking technology will significantly accelerate the release of our context-aware mobile services platform. Aloqa's core technologies, user database, and specialized skills are a strong fit with our planned server-side context delivery architecture and will further enhance Motorola's MOTOBLUR capabilities. We welcome Aloqa's highly skilled personnel to the Motorola Mobility team."
