Where does the name Nimbuzz come from?
Nimbuzz means "halo" – or “a shining cloud sometimes surrounding a deity when on earth.” It fits our vision of "mobile freedom" very well. Although we are a business and need to be a business in order to survive. We also believe in freedom, expression and the hope that our technology can somehow make the world a smaller, closer, better place by fostering international community, cultural awareness and understanding. That may sound hokey, but we hope to live up to it through our actions, not our words.
