ETE Wireless announced the highly anticipated "beta" launch of YuBee.com, the first location based content directory formatted for Mobile users. ETE plans to offer hardware discounts and special offers to early adapters and beta users as they continue to develop their suite of thin-client server side applications and services for mobile users.
YuBee allows users accessing the wireless Internet via Pocket PC and other wireless devices to quickly and easily find relevant content that has been formatted for the small screen.
YuBee asks Mobile users for their current zip code, and delivers the nearest locations for any business establishment, including hotels, restaurants, and business services. Users can change their location information at any time, allowing YuBee to adjust listing data as you travel. YuBee can also provide opt-in e-mail delivery of special offers from local sponsors in the selected area. This provides the traveling mobile user with fast and easy access to discounted products and services wherever they may find themselves. YuBee provides phone, address and mapping services for each location search listing.
Mobile users and web surfers can both experience YuBee by pointing their devices or browser to http://yubee.com. ETE Wireless has provided a Pocket PC emulator on the YuBee.com web site so web surfers can experience YuBee before purchasing a wireless device.
"Existing content directories generally cater to the sync-&-cradle crowd, but our focus is on the true mobile user. YuBee started as an internal tool for our development team to find places to eat and stay while we were traveling," according to ETE Wireless CEO Eric Sikes. "It became robust enough that we began to see the value of it to the real time wireless user on a consumer level."
YuBeeâ€™s content directory only links to sites that are confirmed to be formatted for the 240-pixel width of todayâ€™s handheld computers and PDAâ€™s. Finding resources through YuBee expedites the wireless userâ€™s surfing experience, while minimizing their bandwidth usage and the need for "side scrolling".
ETE Wireless is a leader in wireless solutions, including hardware, connectivity, application development, and marketing. ETE has pioneered the development of technologies that dynamically generate content formatted for wireless and mobile devices. For more information please visit ETE Wireless.
