More SMS Search In the U.S.

Wireless access to information via cell phones and smartphones continues to gain steam here in the U.S.

As you know, Google SMS launched a couple of weeks ago. At the same time we saw Synfonic go live.

Google’s service includes an option to access pricing info from the Froogle database.

A new SMS service from comparison shopping engine Smarter.com that offers access to pricing info for more than 100,000 computer and consumer electronic products became available earlier this week.

Material about how to access and use Smarter.com’s SMS service can be found here.

I plan on using both services and will report my findings on the blog.

and while we’re on the subject of mobile search…
JB points out this new article from Media Post on the topic. He’s as excited as I am (I’ve been posting on the topic since we started the blog) about searching from mobile devices.
