Wireless users may be charged texting fees by their carrier providers.

"Mobile search is not about putting browser technology on a cell phone. UpSNAP Chief Executive Officer Tony Philipp said. "It's about allowing the consumer to search, access and enjoy a rich variety of mobile content and services in a snap. This new application makes finding and enjoying mobile content very easy for everyone."
