RealNetworks makes another mobile buy

Posted by Kim Peterson

This follows Real's September acquisition of South Korean company WiderThan, which helps carriers sell music downloads and ringback tones.

I've asked the question before and will ask it again. After years of tough battles on the PC and Web, is RealNetworks on the verge of becoming a wireless company?
