Microsoft has confirmed that it has acquired Acompli, a mobile e-mail startup, with neither party confirming the acquisition cost. Some have heard that the deal might have set Microsoft's bank accounts back by some $200 million.




The Redmond-based everything giant was most likely interested in scooping up the mobile e-mail startup as they offered early adopters support for Exchange, one-tap calendar integration and simple access to e-mailed files and contacts. Rajesh Jha, Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of Outlook and Office 365, said that the acquisition of Acompli was part of the company's effort to help people get more out of their mobile devices.


Jha added that the decision to acquire Acompli is to provide people with a great cross-platform application that supports the variety of e-mail services that people use daily.
