Comcast Acquires Plaxo

Smart Address BookFrom Plaxo’s Personal Card:

Today is a big day for us at Plaxo, as our partnership with Comcast was just announced. Plaxo will be part of Comcast’s Smartzone™, which aims to provide Comcast Triple Play customers with one central location to send and receive email and instant messages, check voicemail online, etc.

(The beta/soft launch for our work together started a few weeks back. If you’re currently a Comcast Broadband Customer and a Plaxo Member, you can sign up now by clicking here. )

We’re obviously thrilled to be working with Comcast, which is the nation’s leading MSO, with over 24.2 million cable customers, 12.1 million high-speed Internet customers, and 3.0 million voice customers. This should have significant implication’s for Plaxo’s growth curve.

Update: more on that on Dennis Howlett’s Comcast scoops up Plaxo: good move.
