AOL tests mobile search

By Derek Sooman on
AOL has begun testing its new mobile search services as from yesterday. The service will enable users to conduct general Web searches, query AOL's shopping service, and search business listings. In order to use the service, users need to have a mobile device that supports WAP (Wireless Application Protocol), as the services currently aren't available via SMS.

Users can test the services by entering the following address in their mobile browsers: mobile.aolsearch.com. There, users will be able to query three AOL search engines: the general Web search index, the Pinpoint Shopping comparison shopping service, and the AOL Yellow Pages directory of local business listings.
AOL will not charge for using these services; however the same can't be said for mobile carriers, who may apply fees.
