The 4INFO guys have done it again. They have introduced another service for their text messaging platform, this time it's price comparison using a barcode.
Simply send a text to 4INFO (44636) with "price + UPC number (barcode)"
I find using text messaging is much easier than going to the web for simple information. 4INFO is becoming my "text message portal". It's simple, it acts like most mobile search engines, and by using text, I don't mis incoming calls (when Web browser is on, calls go straight to voicemail).
I think if 4INFO sales guys can use some creativity, they have a great shot at being the "Google" for the SMS world.
