Google has just acquired the mobile music and media management platform PushLife. PushLife developes software to sync mobile devices outside the Apple platform. The company was founded in 2008 by Ray Reddy, a former employee of Research in Motion. Previously, Push Life was also in partnership with Virgin Mobile in Canada and Britain.

Blackberry, Nokia, Samsung, and Android phones are some of the devices that the PushLife media management supports. The software can synchronize media between any of these devices and a computer with both iTunes and Windows Media Player.

The PushLife website announces that the service will eventually be discontinued, but that they look forward to more adventures at Google.

According to Wikipedia, the price is estimated to $25 million, and it looks like Google is finally trying to challenge Apple’s success with iTunes.
