0 Comments

On the heels of Google (NSDQ: GOOG), Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO) and Answers.com (NSDQ: ANSW) testing local mobile search and information, comes the news that AOL (NYSE: TWX) has begun beta testing its own mobile service that offers full Internet search queries, information on local interests and shopping destinations.
β€œThe new service is not SMS based, as are most of the mobile search services you see today. Rather, it is based on a transcoding technology that automatically adapts Web pages to the dimensions of small mobile screens,” an AOL spokesperson told BetaNews.
