Motorola announced Thursday the acquisition of location-based software maker Aloqa, its second buyout in recent months, reports TechCrunch. Financial details were not disclosed.
Aloqa software helps smartphone users find relevant Web content based on their location. PaidContent.org calls it "fairly typical of most geo-services providers." Motorola plans to use it to enhance its Motoblur, which supplies customized content on phone homescreens.
Motorola picked up startup 280 North in August.
Meanwhile, speaking at a Deutsche Bank Technology Conference in San Francisco on Wednesday, Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha said the company will have its Android tablet ready by early next year, according to redOrbit.
