Google Acquires Plannr [Rumor]

TechCrunch has released an exclusive report on Google’s acquisition of Plannr. The acquisition has seen no official statement from Google yet and so, the prices have not been confirmed as well.

In my opinion, Google is particularly interested in the integrated email; SMS and phone call service offered by Plannr and will somehow use these technologies to enhance Gmail or the Voice service. Plannr also has an amazing feature of geolocation and group management that can take mail and SMS experience to a new level.

However, the startup has a considerable resemblance with Google Calendar and is suitable for the mobile web as well. Plannr was founded by Ben Eidelson and Jason Prado, who are both ex-Microsoft employees. TechCrunch could not get any official response from Google on the acquisition or the price.
