    Apple Acquires Quattro Wireless

    Apple is getting ready to take on Google in the mobile ad space. Google recently purchased AdMob for $750 million. Quattro Wireless, a direct competitor of AdMob, will be acquired by Apple for a modest $275 million according to BoomTown.Quattro Wireless

    Quattro Wireless has already raised approximately $30 million in venture capital funding since starting in 2006, and has worked with big names like the NFL, CBS and Univision.

    Quattro Wireless has also had a presence on mobile web and in-app ads on the iPhone and Android as well. The Mobile Ads industry is a media model many are interested in and engaging in with huge investments. Some analysts believe this could be the beginning of a whole new way in which products and services are advertised. And since more people are trading out their netbooks for handsets and accessing the web from their phone, why wouldn’t one confidently believe that this emerging market may be gigantic in years to come. It will be interesting to see where Apple plans to go with Quattro. Below is the announcement from Quattro:

    “We are thrilled to let you know that Apple has acquired Quattro. We want to share with you our excitement about this news and what it means for our customers. We have built our business by enabling advertisers to reach the right consumers across the mobile web and in applications. We remain focused on delivering more engaging, relevant and useful ads to mobile devices, and improving the measurement and execution of digital campaigns. Together with Apple, we look forward to developing exciting new opportunities in the future that will benefit our customers.

    For now, the offerings and services you receive from Quattro Wireless will not change. We will continue to operate the Quattro Wireless network across all devices and platforms. Your client and support teams will remain the same, and you can continue to expect the world-class service we are proud to deliver to our customers. We look forward to working with you during this exciting time.”  (
