Back in December we heard rumors that RIM was in talks to acquire the contact management provider Gist and today it has been confirmed.

The company has likely been acquired to help RIM do some new and creative things with their contact management system and Address Book.

Gist hasn’t been around for long, having only launched in 2008 as a free web app that let you manage personal and professional contacts from Microsoft Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Salesforce.com, among other sources.
