While many people may not have heard of Tungle.me, the online scheduling tool is about to reach millions of new business customers as it has been acquired by Research In Motion (RIM), the creators of BlackBerry. The purchase details have not been disclosed, but as the team said on the Tungle  blog,

Yup. It’s official. The team at Tungle will now be sporting new BlackBerrys

Tech Cocktail tested and wrote a review of the tool last May and subsequently embraced the online scheduling tool, using it to schedule the majority of it’s meetings. We’ll be anxious to see what the future holds for Tungle.me, and if their focus will change or if they’ll continue to support individual users, offering a level of free services. CEO and Founder Marc Gingras writes, “It’s playoff season and the Tungle team is focusing on putting the puck in the net for you, our customers… Our objective is to keep innovation at the forefront – to be rebels in our own way. Think, Create, Innovate.”

From our May review…

Tungle.me, a startup based in Montreal, Canada that was founded in 2006, offers a simple online and mobile platform for scheduling. Tungle.me tackles scheduling two different ways. First, users can opt to share the times they are available with a personalized public URL. Secondly, users can share possible meeting times individually per meeting request. When selecting available times users can select a range of times and then meeting participants can select a time that works best in the given range. Tungle also offers a slick iPhone application for on-the-go scheduling.
