Microsoft Corp. announced it has entered into an exclusivity agreement around its intention to acquire Musiwave SA, an Openwave company and a provider of mobile music entertainment services to operators and media companies. The acquisition would bring Musiwave’s relationships with music labels, device makers and mobile operators that deliver digital entertainment to consumers, together with Microsoft’s Connected Entertainment technologies and services, including Windows Mobile, Zune, MSN, and Windows Live. Should the transaction proceed, Musiwave would continue to operate out of its current headquarters in Paris.
