Garmin köper Navigon

GPS-tillverkare konsoliderar

Visa inte Pryl-artiklar
Pryl / Övrigt

Att klimatet för rena GPS-tillverkare blir allt hårdare kommer väl inte som någon direkt nyhet nu när var och varannan har GPS i sin telefon och nu har två av tillverkarna meddelat att de går ihop. Eller rättare sagt en av tillverkarna, Garmin, köper upp den andra, Navigon.

Exakt hur den finansiella uppgörelsen ser ut är än så länge oklart men jag antar att man på det här sättet kan rationalisera en hel del av utveckling, produktion och försäljning. Något som inte helt osannolikt kommer att leda till en del uppsägningar på ett eller båda av företagen.
