If the latest rumors are correct, Google is looking at acquiring WhatsApp in a deal that could be worth around $1 billion. The deal reportedly started out four or five weeks ago, where Digital Trends' source said that WhatsApp is "playing hardball" and are pushing for a higher acquisition price. This price is being pushed "close to" $1 billion right now.
