RIM is on a roll with their acquisitions. The latest is the acquisition of NewBay which is a Dublin, Ireland cloud based service provider. They white label their solution LifeCache for cloud based services for storing, sharing, and organizing digital content like photos and video. NewBay has 200 of their own employees and currently has deals with T-Mobile US, Deutsche Telekom, Verizon, & AT&T.
This seems to be RIM’s answer to Apple, Google, and now Amazons cloud offerings for mobile. They even have a slick SyncDrive solution that competes with DropBox and SugarSync. It should be interesting to see how this plays out. Check out more details about NewBay at www.newbay.com.
