Google Acquires Zingku

Google say they acquired “certain assets and technology of Zingku,” the Google Operating System blog reports. Here’s what Zingku does, according to their About page:

Our service is designed from the mobile phone, outward, allowing you to create and exchange things of interest ranging from invitations to “mobile flyers” with friends in a trusted manner. On the mobile phone, Zingku uses standard text messaging and picture messaging features that come with every phone. On the web, our service uses your standard web browser and instant messenger. There is nothing to install.

It’s a bit like a mobile social network and communication platform, supporting polls, RSS to SMS converters, mobile photo sharing and more.

At this time, sign-ups for new users are frozen while Zingku integrates with Google; existing users get the chance to opt out of the move until October 4th.
