AOL Launches Mobile Search Services
Posted on 2-Dec-2005 09:55 | Tags Filed under: News



AOL has launched a suite of new AOL Mobile Search Services that give users easy access to the AOL Search, Pinpoint Shopping and AOL Yellow Pages services from mobile devices.

The AOL Mobile Search Services let users search the Web, comparison shop for products and access local listings from their mobile phones, smartphones and PDAs.

The new services use transcoding and content analysis technologies from InfoGin Ltd. to automatically adapt search results and Web pages for browser-enabled mobile phones. AOL Mobile Search Services extend the ease and familiarity of desktop search to wireless devices to bring the Web to mobile users' finger tips.

The Mobile AOL Search service gives users the ability to search the Web using any word or phrase, just as they would on the desktop. It lets users access all Web content, not just the WAP-enabled pages accessible through other mobile browsers. Search results are automatically formatted to the user's mobile screen size and links are clickable, making mobile search as actionable and useful as desktop search.

Pinpoint Shopping, AOL's comparison shopping search service, gives users a fast and easy way to find and compare features and prices for millions of products from thousands of online merchants. With mobile Pinpoint Shopping, users can compare prices, products and merchant reputations on the fly before they buy.

Mobile AOL Yellow Pages gives users the ability to not only search for local listings, but to take immediate action on their search results. With just one click, users can place a call to the local businesses they seek and instantly access a relevant MapQuest map with directions.

The service is free of charge, but data service charges may apply.
