Evernote Premium enters Latin America through Telefonica deal

Evernote is looking to expand its global profile through a deal signed with Telefonica that will see it expand into Latin America.

The popular note taking service will expand its Evernote Premium offering into Brazil through a partnership with Telefonica’s Vivo network and offer complementary access for a year.

“Evernote launched an exciting partnership with Telefonica, one of the world’s largest and most forward-thinking telecommunication companies. We’re kicking off the partnership in Brazil by offering Telefonica’s Vivo subscribers an entire year of Evernote Premium. Our plan is to expand this relationship to reach the hundreds of millions of Telefonica mobile customers throughout Latin America and Europe,” the firm explained on its blog.

As part of the Evernote Premium offering customers in Brazil get a higher monthly upload limit of 1GB, the chance to access notes and notebooks offline, better security features, added sharing options and enhanced customer support.

Anyone that already has a free account and is a part of the Vivo customer base will be upgraded free of charge and receive all the extra features that would usually cost.

Brazilian Vivo subscribers are urged to act quickly as the offer is only “available for a limited time” and Evernote may eventually extend the deal to other Latin American countries.

Evernote has been a runaway success in 2013 so far with none other than Apple naming it among the best looking and most innovative apps available for iPhones, iPads and Mac computers.

The company is among the first to have a piece of Glassware integrated into the Google Glass device and they have teamed up with Google to provide a voice activated note taking service that can be used on the device.

Telefonica joins the company’s other carrier partners across the world that include Deutsche Telekom, NTT Docomo in Japan, Taiwan Mobile and a number of others.
