September 29, 2009 07:15 PM

One of the world’s leading mobile manufactures NOKIA has bought social network for travelers, Dopplr. Nokia has bought this from its private share holders.

Dopplr is a free social networking service, launched in 2007. It allows its users to create a detailed plan for a journey and spot correlations with their contacts’ travel plans in order to arrange meetings at any point on their journey.

This acquisition will definitely strengthen its push in offering internet services, the area in which it is focusing other than mobile manufacturing.

Nokia has announced that it will run Dopplr separately from its other current services.

A Nokia spokeswoman said that the price "was a fraction" of the 10-15 million Euros ($14.7-$22.0 million) estimate mentioned in reports.
