Nokia announced a definitive agreement to acquire Eizel Technologies. The Pittsburgh-based company develops server-based products that transform email messages, attachments, intranet applications and web content into formats easily accessible by any mobile device on any network.
Eizel's flagship product makes enterprise email, attachments and web-enabled applications (including intranet content) accessible from browsers on any device over any wireless network. The Eizel(TM) offering is unique because it is server based and requires no alteration of source content and no additional client-side software. It provides 'on-the-fly' reformatting of source content to fit the form factor of the mobile device while preserving interactive elements such as web forms.
