This is perhaps the most hipster acquisition of 2013 — Dropbox, the famous online cloud storage service of excellent reputation — has purchased the up-and-coming iOS Gmail app called Mailbox. Essentially, this creates what could rightly be called “DropMail”. How much does it take to purchase a super-modernized Gmail app for the iPhone and integrate it into your company?
Well, for Dropbox it cost well over $50 million, with close to $100 million in combined cash and stock. Now what remains to be seen is the integration of Mailbox into Dropbox, or maybe even the other way around.
