Webaroo Allows Pocket PC Users to Search Web While Offline
Posted on 20-Jun-2006 13:28 | Tags Filed under: News



Webaroo has released a unique 'web search offline' service, compatible with the Microsoft Windows Mobile 5 platform, and providing owners of Pocket PC and Smarrtphones with the ability to search the web without having to rely on a mobile Internet connection.

Webaroo also announced BenQ Mobile, which it will bundle with its BenQ-Siemens P51 Smartphone, when it launches in Q3 2006.

The Webaroo software and service provide a fast and ubiquitous web search experience on mobile devices with no connection at all, by featuring "web packs" on a variety of subjects, such as world news, soccer/football, major cities, the Wikipedia and more. Each of these packs contains thousands of relevant web pages identified by Webaroo's algorithms.

In one step, users can also select and download their favorite web sites to save and search at their leisure by syncing their mobile devices with their laptops.

Webaroo servers crawl the Internet and analyze web pages, selecting pages with high quality, broad coverage, and small size. Consumers can then download Webaroo and selected content onto their laptop and mobile devices, or purchase a device with Webaroo bundled on it.

With the locally installed packs consumers can search the pages completely disconnected from the Internet. Content is updated every time consumers are connected.
