The Nuggets mobile search engine allows you to search the Internet from your mobile phone, including natural language search via SMS. As part of a new promotion, it is now available for free for a three-month trial period.
The developer, Linguit GmbH, has made the service available for free for a three-month trial period extending from February to the end of April 2005 to encourage new users to try the service. No fees are changed beyond what phone operators may charge users for sending a text message to the service, while the service itself will be free.
Using Nuggets, Internet content can be retrieved from mobile phones, using text messages (SMS). In addition to traditional keyword-based searches offered by similar services, text messages containing questions can be used to search the Web (e.g. "What is myocarditis?". "Who is Ali al-Sistani?", "When did Elvis die?", "Who is the CEO of IBM?", "Where are the table mountains?").
The company says Nuggets is the first fully-automatic mobile search engine which supports natural language, and showcases some of Linguit's advanced language processing technology.
