Google made further inroads into the mobile space today with the acquisition of Zingku, a mobile social networking and communication platform, according to the Google Operating System blog.

Zingku released a statement this afternoon saying that the two companies had entered into an agreement, although the precise terms were not spelled out. While no official statement has been released by Google, the company has since confirmed the acquisition, telling GOS "it is true that we acquired certain assets and technology of Zingku. We believe these assets can help build products and features tha will benefit our users, advertisers and publishers."

There must have been quite a bidding war for zingku just to sew up the domain name ;)

But seriously, anyone here ever heard of them? At first I thought it said they bought the ginsu knives company.
