Tungle sent us an email letting us know that they are now part of the RIM® and although it does not give a time frame or what to expect with this acquisition we do know that Tungle is a leading provider of cloud-based calendar and scheduling services that makes it easy for users to share their availability and schedule appointments regardless of their choice of desktop, mobile or cloud-based calendar. Tungle connects users on Google, Yahoo!, FaceBook, TripIt, Plancast, Outlook, iCal, LotusNotes, LotusLive, and WindowsLive. Could this be something we will see integrated into future BlackBerry devices or a calendar solution for the BlackBerry PlayBook? Time will tell.
We’re really excited about this. We know there isn’t an industry more exciting than the smartphone and tablet markets. And RIM is a dominant player in this space.
And they’re Canadian, eh?
This is exciting for you too as we expect the Tungle service to only get better. Our plan today is what it has always been – for Tungle to become integrated with your daily activities and be ubiquitous within the applications you’re already using. When you think scheduling, Tungle should be at your fingertips.
As of today, the entire team is joining the ranks of RIM. It’s playoff season and the Tungle team is focusing on putting the puck in the net for you, our customers.
You have kept us on our toes, given us great ideas and most importantly, have been great supporters. For that, we thank you.
Our objective is to keep innovation at the forefront – to be rebels in our own way. Think, Create, Innovate.
