Cloud storage Dropbox has acquired popular email management Mailbox. But there is no news what DropBox paid for the MailBox. Dropbox would like to become a Web powerhouse by adding features to its core storage function.
From CEO of DropBox:
We felt we could help Mailbox reach a much different audience much faster. Both companies shared the goal of making people’s lives easier.
Dropbox will keep the Mailbox service running as a stand-alone app, and over time Dropbox will also use Mailbox’s technology to enhance Dropbox features, like email attachments. The deal came together after the companies started talking about email attachments a few months ago.
