As for keyboards for mobile phones, there are hundreds of applications with all kinds of features. In due time we already started looking for the best alternatives, turning out to be surprised due to the existing variety. However, in recent months the sector has fallen slightly. That means that the companies involved have had to find other ways to finance. And others, of course, have been provided for sale.
Microsoft has taken a new step in terms of acquiring outside companies. This time he has gone to the market of keyboards for smartphones. The announcement was made a few hours ago: have bought SwiftKey, one of the most popular applications for Android and iOS. The Redmond company has had to be left a total of 250 million dollars in the process, although there is no doubt that they will capitalize on it.
In addition to absorb all the talent that exists right now in SwiftKey, also they will integrate some of the solutions in their own products. The Windows operating system, in all its aspects, could be the protagonist in the coming months, but we must not rule out the fact that the apps will present both iOS and Android.
Microsoft has returned to go shopping, though their latest moves in the mobile market have not been very successful. Could we say that the company wants to storm back to the competition? It could be. Resources, at least, does not lack resources. Do not discard, either, that will soon have new purchases.
