KaiOS Technologies Inc., developer of the emerging operating system for smart feature phones, KaiOS, today announced a $22M Series A investment from Google to help bring the internet to the next generation of users.
You're probably not aware of KaiOS, since it only runs on feature phones most of us don't use. KaiOS is a fork of FirefoxOS, and is actually quite popular - it's already on 40 million feature phones, including various Nokia phones. Google's investment makes sense here, and ensures its services are available on these devices. I'm still contemplating buying the 8110 (in yellow, of course) to get acquainted with KaiOS.
