GrandCentralGoogle’s acquisition of GrandCentral, which we reported on last week, was officially announced on their blog today. GrandCentral is a telephony startup which lets you use a single phone number and voicemail box for all your phones.

This acquisition will bring Google into the telephony market and perhaps lead to greater integration with some of their other products. The technology, Google claims, will be moved to their infrastructure while current users will continue to have ‘uninterrupted service.’

It isn’t clear whether Google plans to keep the GrandCentral service going indefinitely (like YouTube) or attach their own piece of branding to it like most of their other acquisitions. Also, the price wasn’t disclosed, but is estimated to be somewhere in the early tens of millions.

Allen Stern from CenterNetworks has a good interview with its founder Craig Walker from back in September last year, right after their initial launch.
