Xobni allows users to integrate Twitter, LinkedIn, (s LNKD) Facebook, Skype and other services with their Outlook inboxes. But it looks like the company will have something new coming up…
When asked for comment, a Xobni spokesperson sent the following statement:
“We’ve signed a commercial agreement, and as part of that agreement, the partnering company invested money in Xobni. The nature of the agreement will become more obvious as we roll out products.”
Ok! So we’ll look forward to this major partner being announced at some point. In the meantime, Xobni released contact management tools for Gmail, iOS and Android. Xobni also hired away WebOS app development chief Michael Rizkalla.
