deCarta has launched deCarta Mobile Search, a brand-able mobile local search alternative to traditional Internet search engines, designed specifically for mobile operators, directory service providers, and handset manufacturers.
Similar to traditional search engines, deCarta Mobile Search provides maps, address finding, routing, directions, and freeform text search of local content from leading content providers. Examples include restaurant reviews, weather, traffic, movies, events, news, yellow pages, and more. In addition, deCarta Mobile Search also enables operators, directory providers, and handset makers to add content and manage the way content is presented to users. It also offers spatial search algorithms that, according to deCarta, allow mobile users to find more relevant points of interest than traditional search providers.
