RIM acquires company that makes WebKit based Iris browser
Recently we told you about RIM's efforts to improve the much maligned BlackBerry browser. The Canadian company took a major step toward achieving this goal when it acquired Torch Mobile. The latter company is the firm producing the WebKit based Iris browser. According to WMExperts, Torch will no longer produce browsers for Windows Mobile or Windows CE because of the deal. Terms of the purchase were not made public, although RIM has a high priced stock it can use for currency.

Torch Mobile has a number of developers that were heavily involved in developing and contributing to the design of the WebKit project and will continue to do so as part of RIM. With talk about a new browser for the BlackBerry that will be on par with mobile Safari, RIM is certainly pulling out all of the stops in an effort to keep their word.
