4info.net is a mobile search service (SMS, Web, Mobile Web) that we've blogged about a lot in 2005 and I continue to be impressed with. I also use it on a very regular basis. The San Francisco company is ending the year with even more search tools for the mobile web user.
The following links will take you to pages with more info about the service and how to access it. A mobile emulator also allows you to demo or use the service via a regular web browser.
+ Package Tracking

+ News Headlines
