Myriad Group = Esmertec + Purple Labs + Openwave + Sagem

New name to remember: Myriad Group. Google finds several, but not the right one yet. Would expect mobile veterans to find a more unique name. Btw great summary by RethinkWireless.

Esmertec, creator of JVM for all non-Nokia phones. Purple Labs, medium size name in mobile sw business for already a decade, growing steadily. Openwave, big name in (wap) browsing. Had a bright future, but wap just didn't succeed. Sagem, old mobile phone vendor still bravely struggling to stay in game.

Wonder what they will make together. Great potential, but can they focus.
