deCarta Unveils Mobile Search Offering

David Murphy

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.
deCarta Mobile Search is a full-featured and customizable application developed in JavaScript to run inside W3C compliant widget runtime frameworks, across a wide variety of handset brands, models, and operating systems. The deCarta Mobile Search widget connects to deCartas LBS servers to provide a full mobile search experience that can be customized and differentiated with any form of geo-referenced content.
