Xobni for BlackBerry is officially out of beta testing and available to all. Xobni (inbox backwards) are well known for their popular Microsoft Outlook add-in that allows you to manage your email and contacts, as well as discover more about those you work with. Xobni for BlackBerry automatically logs profile data about anyone you have emailed, and gives you quick access to their contact information.

Alongside the Xobni for BlackBerry announcement is a new feature called Xobni One, a service that connects your Outlook and Xobni for BlackBerry. This feature adds cloud functionality to the Xobni service, allowing you to get the same rich profile data but for anyone you have ever emailed, regardless of when the app was installed.

Combining the two applications, Xobni for BlackBerry gives you:

  • Email addresses for everyone with whom you communicate.
  • Automatic phone number extraction.
  • Access to contacts using Xobni within the email compose screen or in standalone application.
  • Prioritized contacts using Xobni Rank, which lists contacts by how often you communicate with them versus alphabetically.
  • Saving of Xobni profiles in the event of hard drive crash or lost phone.
  • One-click access to Facebook and LinkedIn profiles, including photos.
  • Access to recent SMS, phone calls and emails exchanged, and shared appointments.
  • Access to a shared network of people.
  • Ability to send your calendar availability to all contacts.

Xobni’s Manager of Support, confirmed over LinkedIn that Xobni for BlackBerry will be released “towards the end of February.” Our good friend Brett made sure to screengrab the statement and throw it up on his Posterous blog, so we’ll be holding Xobni to that time frame. A month feels like a long time but I guess it’s not so bad considering this is such a cool app.

BlackBerry Cool Roundup for the Week of January 11th

Comments

This was an interesting week for BlackBerry news. There was a ton of news I would file under WTF, including a BlackBerry getting God’s blessing, and the 9500 ending up in the Royal Collection. Of course the best news comes from Nan Palmero, BlackBerry Cool’s CES 2010 correspondent. He got some awesome footage of Xobni and LinkedIn for BlackBerry.
