Back at the end of March Xobni received $3 million in series B financing from Research in Motion via the BlackBerry Developers Fund. Barely a month later, Xobni executives were showing off the app at a Mobile Meetup in San Francisco.
The app was working, and could be released sometime this summer, according to my source. The photo above shows the app on a Blackberry Bold, and appears to be showing off its contact search functionality. You type in a few letters, and it returns the contact information for every match in your inbox (even people who you haven’t necessarily added to your address book yet). I wonder what else it can do.
I actually use Xobni on my laptop and will be very interested to see how it runs on the BlackBerry.
