Google bought Jaiku, a Finnish mobile phone messaging service.
Jaiku is similar to Twitter in some ways. Jaiku users post about what they're doing, how they're feeling, or where they're going right now. Jaiku will continue to operate without change. Google plans to use the ideas and technology behind Jaiku to make compelling and useful products.
For many this acquisition is another step towards the Google OS for mobile phones.
