Evernote plans to build its own hardware

Evernote is planning to expand from making note-taking apps into making its own hardware.

The company hasn't stated which type of device it had in mind, with CEO Phil Libin taking a leaf out of the Apple marketing manual, telling PC World it would be "new and magical".

The Evernote-branded hardware really could be anything: Evernote is already integrated into a wide variety of products, including scanners, printers, tablets, smart pens and health monitors - as well as Google Glass and a Samsung fridge.

"We won’t actually do the manufacturing, but we’ll do the co-design together," Libin said at a conference in Japan. "Eventually, in a few years — three, four, five — I think we’ll be ready to do something ourselves."

The company added that it was planning to introduce two-factor authentication to its accounts next month, following a hacking attack in March.

I can't find any review of the Evernote service on the PC Pro website and wonder why this is. Currently experimenting with Evernote on PC and iPad I am very impressed, but don't have the time to compare it with e.g. Google 'Keep'. This interesting news item on Evernote's hardware intentions will remain fairly inscrutable to many until someone explains to readers exactly what Evernote does.
