The Cell Phone Can Do It

From The New York Times.com The cellphone's potential as a search tool gets tapped .

Nothing really new in this article that hasn't been discussed in detail on PP.

Search engines like Google and Yahoo are betting that most consumers will catch on to what Mr. Goyal has already figured out - that mobile phones can search the Web when a computer is not nearby

"This is a chicken and egg problem that is going to go away," he added, as soon as Web developers realize "there are 1.2 billion phones out there that can connect to information."

Would Google and MSFT take a closer look if they could tap 1.2 billion PC's?
