Toronto’s Viigo acquired by RIM

Toronto’s Viigo announced last night on their website that they have been acquired by Waterloo’s Research In Motion.

Viigo is excited to announce that our company is now part of Research In Motion (RIM).

Our team has joined RIM’s global organization and will continue to bring our expertise in BlackBerry® application development and real-time content delivery to the BlackBerry platform. The Viigo for BlackBerry app will also continue to be available for download through BlackBerry App World™.

To the Viigo Team – a very special thanks to all of you for helping to build such an exciting product, and a wonderful company. We’ve arrived at this point today because of you.

Mark Ruddock, CEO Viigo

Viigo’s popular RSS reader delivers mobile content to smart phones.  Viigo has received investment from RBC Ventures Partners and the BlackBerry Partners Fund in the past, so not a surprise that Viigo was on RIM acquisition radar.
