Inside Xobni for BlackBerry (video)

The new premium Xobni for BlackBerry is the latest tool for the mobile workforce, and we've got to say, it's a handy one. Check it out in our First Look video tour.

BlackBerry owner? Check. Business professional? Check. A million contacts to keep track of? Again, check. The new premium Xobni for BlackBerry is the latest tool for the mobile workforce and we've got to say, it's a handy one.

If you're familiar with Xobni for Outlook, the conceit will sound familiar. Xobni builds a profile for every person you contact from your phone, adding them to a growing database of people that you can reach out to, even if you have never added them to your address book.

Top it off with a premium subscription to get Outlook contacts on your BlackBerry through the cloud-based Xobni One, and you're looking at a contact management app that pulls its own weight. It isn't a cheap service and there's still plenty of room for improvement, but we certainly wouldn't steer heavy e-mail users away.
