Power shoppers don’t need x-ray vision, telepathy and the ability to leap tall department stores in a single bound to find everything they want on a shopping trip
Chicago (PRWEB) December 1, 2006
Divas across the U.S. are encouraged to enter a sweepstakes at DivaVillage.com tomorrow, November 30, 2006, for a chance to win a Palm TX device loaded with Where to Wear digital shopping guides.
The combination of the Palm TX and Where to Wear shopping guides comes just in time for the hectic holiday shopping season and will provide the winner of the sweepstakes with a high-tech electronic guide for the nation’s top shopping meccas. The Where to Wear shopping guide, powered by Earthcomber’s location-aware mobile mapping and content technology, scans stores in the vicinity and reports which ones have hits on the user’s shopping list.
The Palm TX handheld given away in the DivaVillage sweepstakes offers the latest in mobile technology, featuring Wi-Fi, Bluetooth wireless technologies, and a high-resolution 320x480 color screen.
Earthcomber’s digital version of the Where to Wear shopping guides combine location-based technology and mapping along with a perpetual automatic comb of the surroundings for each individual’s personal shopping list as the person moves around a city.
“Power shoppers don’t need x-ray vision, telepathy and the ability to leap tall department stores in a single bound to find everything they want on a shopping trip,” said Jill Fairchild, founder of Where to Wear and daughter of fashion publishing mogul John Fairchild. “With a few taps on your handheld, our digital shopping guides comb the surrounding area—as far as you tell it to look—for businesses that are a spot-on match to your wish list.”
