Torch Mobile, one of the few independent developers of Windows Mobile web browsers and the maker of Iris Browser (for Windows Mobile) just announced, that the company has been acquired by Research In Motion (RIM), well known for their BlackBerry mobile phones. According to the statement on Torch Mobile's homepage, the team of developers will join RIM's global organization and will now be focused on utilizing their WebKit-based mobile browser expertise to contribute to the ongoing enhancement of the BlackBerry platform. As part of RIM, these developers will continue to be active participants in the WebKit development community.

While Torch Mobile hasn't yet said anything about the Iris Browser for Windows Mobile, it's most unlikely that the Windows Mobile version-development is continued, especially since it never left the Beta status.

Cheers ~ Arne
