Nokia announced its acquisition of Boston-based mobile advertising service provider Enpocket. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. According to Nokia, the deal will accelerate the growth of its mobile advertising business, leveraging Enpocket's platform and partnerships with advertisers, publishers and operators.
