It’s official. Nokia has acquired Dopplr, a privately held Finnish mobile social network firm designed for travelers.
Dopplr has a team of seven people with offices in London and Helsinki. In a press release, Nokia says the Dopplr team brings to Nokia’s Services unit “unique know-how in creating Internet-based communities and showing their journeys, experiences and tastes” collectively on the Web.
Nokia did not reveal the purchase price and says the acquisition does not change the current Dopplr service, which is available at Dopplr.com and on platforms where Dopplr is integrated.
Reports surfaced last week at TechCrunch that Nokia had acquired the company for around $15 million to $22 million.
Dopplr members share personal and business travel plans privately with their networks and highlight interesting places to stay, eat and explore in cities around the world.
