PocketGear absorbs Handango

Independent app vendor jumps to number three spot

PocketGear are seeking to change that perception, and by acquiring Handango now have the ability to field a cross-platform marketplace with more than 140,000 titles, spread across Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Symbian and Palm. The increase in scale for the two firms potentially makes them world number three, behind Apple and Google. PocketGear already provide the backbone for 40 storefronts, including those of Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson, T-Mobile and AT&T.
