PocketGear definitely isn’t too popular among developers – especially as the folks have shown a few very stupid stunts in the past.
Nevertheless, venture capitalists seem to be more convinced of their ideas. Mobile Business Briefing currently reports the following:
… mobile apps store PocketGear has secured US$15 million in ‘series B’ funding, with investors including Trident Capital, BlackBerry Partners Fund and TomorrowVentures, the personal fund of Google’s Eric Schmidt.
This should be especially interesting for all developers planning legal action over their recent bork-ups – if you plan to get cash, go for it now!
