As most of you know Google announced the introduction of their new Google 411 service. We thought it might be interesting to see how long it would take to integrate this service into a mobile browser. (Answer: about 30 minutes).
The two images below show how it’s done using 5o9’s Context manager. We built two examples one in English and one in German. As you can see the menus in the browser change dynamically based on the context of the user. It also illustrates how to get to relevant content quicker than using the dialer on a mobile phone.
For example dialing 1-800-466-4411 requires 11 clicks – using our context manager only requires 3. One to launch the browser, one to select menu and one to select Google 411 – it then automatically dials the number for you.
