Oakland, CA (PRWEB) January 16, 2007
WineZap.com (http://www.winezap.com) has introduced a wine search for mobile phones and devices allowing wine lovers to search wine prices and availability.
WineZap Mobile Search is a mobile device optimized website. Visitors are provided a simple interface that works easily with both mobile phone keypads and smartphone keyboards. Users enter a vintage and wine name and are shown prices and contact information from wine retailers around the United States. If the search includes a 5 digit U.S. zip code, the results will include local retailers and their contact information.
The search engine results are optimized for mobile devices screens and display in an easy to read format with price, retailer information and phone number. Certain compatible devices (including Blackberry and Treo) include “click to dial” links to easily place a phone call the retailer.
The WineZap Mobile Search service is free and simple to use. Browse to http://www.winezap.com using a mobile device’s built in web browser. The application recognizes all the major mobile device browsers and will automatically load the mobile optimized search engine.
The pricing and retailer information is from WineZap’s advanced search engine. The system collects wine pricing information from over 700 U.S. retailers, normalizes the data and aggregates it.
Michael Stajer, WineCommune’s (WineZap’s parent company) CEO, sees the new service as a consumer friendly advance: “This product is aimed at the millions of Americans who visits wine shops everyday to buy wine. They don’t have to wonder anymore if you are paying too much for a bottle of wine – they can use their mobile to search WineZap.com and know who else is selling that wine and at what price. This will save people time and money.”
Mobile Search complements WineZap’s existing SMS product which text’s wine prices to consumers. For the future, WineZap is working on a service that allows mobile phone users to text a photo of a wine label to get in depth product and pricing information.
