Motorola earlier this summer acquired a company called 280 North. The company developed a new programming language and framework called Cappucino that helps create web-based applications. Motorola said in a statement to TechCrunch, "The transaction provides Motorola with specialized web-app engineering talent and technology that will help facilitate the continued expansion of Motorola’s application ecosystem. We believe 280 North will be instrumental in helping us continue to foster the Android ecosystem with innovative web-based technologies and applications." Terms of the sale were not disclosed.
