NearbyNow, which is one of several companies trying to build a local product inventory database, has launched SMS-based mobile search for shopping malls. According to the release, the service “allows consumers to find any product, brand or sale in a shopping mall simply by sending a text message. By typing their request into their mobile phone, consumers can easily find the nearest store that sells ‘skinny jeans’ or ‘men’s shoes on sale.’”
Here’s a ClickZ story on the new offering and a longer, earlier post on NearbyNow more generally.
