Phonebook 2.0: The Next Generation Mobile Address Book
Phonebook 2.0 is an on-device address book that aggregates, backs-up and synchronizes contact data from disparate address book databases and is available across devices anywhere and at anytime. An important feature of Phonebook 2.0 is its ability to dynamically update itself by aggregating the most current contact information available on the web.
The emergence of Phonebook 2.0 is driven by the wealth of online communications services available to users, and the increasing number of address books (contacts databases) users must now maintain, as each service hosts a discreet list of contacts, friends or buddies. As a result, users are struggling with the desire to keep in touch with all their contacts anywhere at anytime and, at the same time, becoming overwhelmed with the task of managing an increasing number of disparate address books. Today, users have address books scattered across cyberspace, residing within services ranging from instant messaging and VoIP applications to corporate and desktop PIM applications, e-mail services, multiple social networks and on the mobile phone. Phonebook 2.0 will provide users a unified, dynamic and ubiquitous view of all their contacts.
The next generation on-device address book is in high demand and is expected to grow from a $49 million market in 2009 to $2.7 billion in 2013.
