Android needs no introduction. Just imagine how intelligent the brains behind this operating system must be. One of the co-founders of Android, Rich Miner has now become a board member of Dialpad. This is the same company which you know by the name Switch.co.
Switch.co has adopted a new name. The company will now be known as Dialpad. Another big news about Dialpad is, Rich Miner becoming a part of the company’s board. So, is Swich.co’s new name a brain child of Miner? Is Switch undergoing a makeover with a new strategy in mind? “We believe Dialpad is the heart and soul of how people communicate in the modern workplace. Renaming our company signifies a major shift in what’s possible when your phone becomes something more,” wrote Switch on Dialpad Support.
Dialpad also confirmed that many more updates will be announced soon. “We’re going to announce some exciting product updates next week, so make sure you update your apps to get the most out of the new Dialpad,” was further added to the post on Dialpad Support; Re/Code was the first to report the news. Along with the name change and Rich Miner’s appointment on the board, the site gave more information about the investment. Here is what it wrote
“Aside from the investment from GV, Dialpad has raised a combined $53 million in three rounds from Andreessen Horowitz, Amasia, Felicis Ventures, Work-Bench and SoftBank. It has also started landing large customers. It will announce at a conference in Orlando that it has landed a 22,000-user deployment with Motorola Solutions.”
Does that mean there are some big announcement is coming our way? Is the mobile industry going to witness something as big as Android in the coming days? Wow, that would be wonderful. But it’s too early to comment on it so let just wait and watch. Next week is not too far anyways.
