By CBR Staff Writer

Open source mobile cloud sync and push email provider Funambol has acquired AJAX web 2.0 framework provider Zapatec, in a move which will enable them to address the industry pervasive device fragmentation challenge which requires building native apps for many platforms.

The company said that the combination of its open source mobile sync and push server, with Zapatec’s AJAX web 2.0 technology, will foster open, rich mobile browser native apps for smartphones and feature phones.

According to Funambol, its integration with Zapatec provides the required resources to build the next generation of open, mobile browser native apps. It combines Funambol’s open source mobile data sync and push server platform, with Zapatec’s AJAX web 2.0 framework.

As part of the acquisition, Zapatec CEO Dror Matalon is joining Funambol’s leadership team as vice president of emerging technology.
