Nokia has strengthened its position in the social networking space with the acquisition of Cellity, a Hamburg software company that offers a way to collect and store users' contacts securely in one place.
The service is an easy way to connect people on the mobile and the web, Nokia said, announcing the deal today.
Nokia will acquire the Cellity team but scrap Cellity's current service. The deal is expected to close in the third quarter this year when Cellity staff will join Nokia's services unit. Terms were not disclosed.
