ContactZilla is another take on the unified address book. Or more specifically, it's being pitched as an online 'Contact Management System' for businesses designed with the Social Web in mind and the ability to merge contacts from the likes of Twitter and LinkedIn with more traditional sources. The service, built by Bristol, UK-based web development agency Simpleweb, is currently in private Beta but TechCrunch Europe has 200 invites.Of course, this kind of offering has been tried before - and many startups are playing in and around the social CRM space. However, ContactZilla hopes to differentiate itself by remaining free compared to the likes of more traditional offerings such as Gist or Capsule.
