Leading German local search engine suchen.de have hooked up with IT2Media and mobile People to roll out a new mobile search service. The interesting thing about this one is there’s a downloadable client for your phone, so no need to fiddle around with a web browser.
Mobile users will be able to access specific content including yellow and white pages, the mobile internet, local news and weather information. With the downloadable client the user benefits from a robust and efficient method of search, a better user experience over browser based solutions and additional functionality. Search results can be shown on an interactive map, saved to the mobile phone’s address book, sent to a friend and users can easily initiate a call via click-to-call. Predictive text functionality makes it easy to enter search terms by simply selecting from a list which also includes previously used search terms.
