California:-

BlackBerry will buy rival mobile software provider Good Technology for $425 million, to boost its ability to help corporate clients manage smartphones running on different operating systems. The cash deal may help BlackBerry, a one-time smartphone pioneer, win new customers for its services business, a priority as it shifts focus to device management software for enterprise customers. More than half the devices running on Good’s systems are Apple products such as the iPhone. BlackBerry said it expects to realize about $160 million in revenue from the acquisition in the first year after the deal closes, expected by late November.– DM
