Google has made an acquisition in Finland, picking up Helsinki-based software company drawElements, which specializes in computer graphics technologies for the embedded space, for an undisclosed price (ArcticStartup says it has narrowed down the price to '8 figures').

DrawElement's main product is the drawElements Quality Program (dEQP), a system for benchmarking the accuracy, precision and stability of GPUs and their drivers.

According to a message on the drawElements website, the team will join Google's Android team to incorporate 'some of its technology' into the compatibility test suite.

In other news (depending on how you look at it) Google supposedly took an interest in buying Spotify but balked at the asking price, though the well-informed Kara Swisher says the report is basically bullshit and that there have been no acquisition discussion talks between the companies. Yet.
