Dropbox has announced the acquisition of Mailbox.
Mailbox view the acquisition as being a way for them to grow faster.
Mailbox launched recently and has garnered a lot of media attention, so being “snapped up” so quickly is interesting. You might have expected someone else to get them, as Damien Mulley commented:
Woah Dropbox buys Mailbox, probably beating Google and Apple to it. Says a lot about Dropbox these days blog.dropbox.com/2013/03/welcom…

According to the Wall Street Journal, the entire Mailbox team will be moving to Dropbox.
