BlackBerry 10 to come with deep Evernote integration
BlackBerry 10, the upcoming overhaul of RIM’s mobile operating system, is likely to feature deep integration with the most popular note-taking service Evernote. While Apple for instance has been working on integrating Facebook and Twitter deeper into its system, BlackBerry which values its corporate customers adds Evernote on top of that.

The finding comes shortly after RIM released the BlackBerry 10 SDK for developers to get serious about bringing their apps to BB10.

One of the new apps that has now come into focus in BlackBerry 10 is “Remember,” a personal information manager. Apart from aggregating emails, contacts and calendars, there is a separate “Notebooks” which is “folder-like object that contains notebook entries.”

“Notebooks are used to organize actionable and non-actionable items called notebook entries into separate folders or topics. For example, you can create a "grocery list" notebook that contains items you need to purchase, each of which can be marked as completed as it is added to your cart. Notebooks can also contain non-actionable notebook entries, such as photos taken on a trip.”

With competing platform Apple having a very basic note app and Android lacking a built-in notes application, this could be one kind of a differentiator BlackBerry has nailed right.

Now why didn't others think of that? Its way better than Facebook integration. RIM is certainly thinking different with BB10.

"Android lacking a built-in notes application", one of the many things that I say make for a not so good out of the box experience on stock Android.

But yeah, RIM is surely thinking different, and it is nice to see. Will be interesting to see all these new OS next year - BB10, Sailfish, Firefox OS, and maybe even a Tizen device at CES (I think Samsung could be teasing a Tizen smartphone, yes), though whether they become popular remains to be seen. We need more functional and not-limited OS choices other than Android, so hopefully one of these will do it!

You mentioned Apple and Android, but forgot about WP8, it's having Microsoft's note taking App, and it's integrated well into OS........

Well played RIM. You guys were a little slow though so I went with a Galaxy S3. I might go BB10 though if you have a goodf trade in program to buy my S3 and I buy your phone.

Again, I have to harp on bad grammar in this article. The gerund in the last sentence is rather jarring.

i just love that great apps are coming to BB10!! this platform is indeed the 2nd choice of devs of iOS and android!

coz they dont need to rewrite their apps on it..

while WP, they need new devs... so i think if BB10 is market well, it will really have a great shot on being the 3rd platform of choice!
