Anyone reading this still actively use a BlackBerry device? I sure don't, but any company that considers working the popular Evernote notetaking and archiving software into its offering of products or services gets a +1 in my books. Yes, even RIM.
Just after Evernote announced another $85-million round in funding and an expansion of its premium service geared at business-related tasks, we're now also learning that BlackBerry 10 -- RIM's brand new and upcoming OS -- will feature deep integration with the popular productivity service.
Although Evernote is already available for BlackBerry and every other major platform, the move toward deeper integration with the new OS should offer a nice advantage to the struggling smartphone maker as it fights for its life against Apple and Android in the smartphone market. RIM's primary user base has always largely revolved around business professionals, and Evernote's new premium business features could partially help reignite the CrackBerry love that may have been lost to other popular platforms in recent years.
