UpSnap & MuseGlobal Offer Mobile Metasearch

UpSnap, a provider of mobile search and content, has partnered with federated search technology firm MuseGlobal to provide one of the first metasearch engines for mobile devices.

From the press release:

“Mobile metasearch technology from MuseGlobal searches multiple mobile sites simultaneously. For example, if you are looking for a particular ringtone, rather than going to ten different mobile sites one-at-a-time, which will take you 30 minutes or more, you now go to and put in one search only. UpSNAP will then search all ten ringtone sites at once and deliver sorted, de-duplicated and uniform results instantly.”

The new metasearch works both through a web interface on any page of, or via SMS, allowing virtually any mobile device with a text messaging account to use the new service. More information on using the service can be found here.
