In a bid to improve its smartphone range, Nokia has acquired Chicago-based mobile web browser firm Novarra.

Novarra, an 11-year-old company, is known for developing the Vision web browser, as well as platforms to serve content, advertisements and analytics. It previously supplied its technology to Palm and US Cellular.

The acquisition makes sense for the world's largest phone maker, which has come under fire recently for not being aggressive enough in the emerging smartphone market.
