Submission + - Google rumoured to be negotiating for Whatsapp purchase (digitaltrends.com)

Kelerei writes: The rumour mill has it that Google is in negotiations to acquire the Whatsapp mobile messaging application. Many have suspected that a messaging app would be "the next billion dollar acquisition deal" following Facebook's acquisition of Instagram last year. Acquiring Whatsapp could be regarded as a no-brainer, as messaging has been described as "a huge, gaping hole in Google's mobile strategy". Whatsapp is reportedly asking for a $1 billion acquisition price.
