The popular online service Evernote together with its industrial partners will release a co-branded hardware. About the future plans of the company in an interview with news agency IDG News Service said Evernote CEO Phil Libin, who abides by Technology Conference New Economy Summit in Tokyo.

According to Libin, Evernote is going to develop a number of “new and weird” devices, which will be different from currently existing products. As will appear, such devices are not reported.

The CEO also did not disclose their specifications. It is known that the current Evernote is working with hardware vendors on the integration of the service with cameras, scanners, and other devices such as a monitor to control blood pressure.

In the past year, the company Evernote together with the Italian manufacturer of office supplies Moleskin released a “smart” notebook that supports mobile applications. Thanks to the special labels, labels for entries in the notebook can easily categorize and move onto the tablet or smartphone.

I think in a few years, three, four, five, all of us will release something, – said Mr. Libin.

That is, the first Evernote to enlist the support of third-party manufacturers, and only then will launch a branded product yourself.

During the interview, Libin also noted that Evernote plans to use in its two-factor authentication service, which should increase the level of security of personal data. A new feature is likely to be implemented in May. The reinforcement of the security was made after burglary Evernote, forcing service to reset passwords of all its users.
