Today, at its Evernote Trunk Conference in San Francisco, Evernote announced a partnership with expensive high-quality notebook maker Moleskine. The surprising partnership yielded a new offering called “Evernote Smart Notebook”. Since many people still take notes with pen and paper, it is a partnership that makes sense.

The Evernote Smart Notebook allows people to take notes by hand and then make the notes available online, TechCrunch first noted. To upload the notes, a photo of a page from the notebook is taken with the Evernote app. The notes are then saved to a user’s Evernote account where they can be browsed, searched and organized. Special stickers are provided to tell Evernote which virtual notebook to organize the note into.

Evernote for iOS was also updated to version 4.4 this afternoon. The small update adds various bug fixes, improved PDF support on the iPad, faster download times, the page camera discussed above, and the ability to add multiple snapshots into a single note. During the conference, Evernote also announced Evernote Business allows for small- and medium-sized businesses to easily stay organized.

Evernote and Moleskin handed out free copies at today’s conference, but non-attendees can go ahead and pre-order it on Evernote’s online store. A small notebook is available for $24.95 and a large for $29.95. There is no word on when they will be available. As we said, they are not exactly cheap.
