While it isn’t yet available, Trilibis Mobile have sent over some details and a screenshot of a new social phonebook application that they’re launching in Q4 of 2009 called Orbit.
Orbit is described as a free social phonebook that cleverly organizes all of your communication channels: voice, text, e-mail and social networking.
The app has a unique system of prioritizing and organizing contacts in your social networks so you can decide how often and how much information you receive. The app syncs with your phonebook, and then you can add additional contacts from Facebook and Twitter.
The application is probably best described in the feature set:
- Improved Core Controls – Use your Orbit phonebook just like your existing phonebook; make calls, send text messages and e-mails. Orbit includes an enhanced A-to-Z scrolling feature to greatly improve the navigation of contacts on touch screen devices.
- Orbits – Create an “Inner Orbit” for your closest friends. Add additional Orbits such as college friends, colleagues or family members, making it easy and convenient to keep track of everyone’s updates.
- Social Volume – With Orbit’s unique “Social Volume” control, you can control the level of communication from your groups of contacts whether by time of day, day of week, type of feed, birthdays, etc.
- Connected Phonebook – Rest assured! Orbit’s contact information is always updating so you will always be “in the know.” Orbit organizes and consolidates your contacts and auto-generates a favorites list based on the people you communicate with the most.
