China's UCWeb partners with Evernote to bring note-taking feature to mobile browser

UCWeb and Evernote announced a partnership on Thursday to help the companies expand globally

The company behind one of China's largest mobile Internet browsers, UCWeb, will incorporate note-taking features from Evernote into its product, as part of a partnership to help the companies expand globally.

The partnership announced Thursday will likely help Evernote achieve its objective to make China its second-largest market by year end.

Under the agreement, UCWeb's mobile browsers will include functions to easily save and share information through Evernote's note-taking services. The features are already available in the international edition of the browser, which works in English. But by the end of June, the Evernote features will be added to UCWeb's Chinese language browser which is available for Android, Apple's iPhone, Nokia's Symbian OS and other mobile operating systems.

UCWeb wants to take advantage of its reach across China and in foreign markets to offer a platform for partner companies to expand abroad, said Robert Tanner, UCWeb's international strategic cooperation director while speaking at the Global Mobile Internet Conference being held in Beijing.

UCWeb's philosophy is "helping Chinese companies go abroad, and helping foreign companies to enter the Chinese market," he added.

By June or July, UCWeb plans to launch a U.S. edition of its popular mobile browser. The company, which has 1,100 employees, is also working on setting up an office in the country later this year.

Earlier on Thursday, Evernote launched a new China-based service that it expects will help expand the company's user base in the country. China is already Evernote's third largest market behind Japan and the U.S.

"We would like to work with partners to accelerate their globalization, at the same time increase our presence in markets such as China," said Ken Gullicksen, Evernote vice president for corporate development.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
