Published: 21 Oct 2008: Online travel search engine iXiGO has launched its offering for mobile phones on m.ixigo.com.
The company plans to tap India´s 60 million GPRS enabled phones out of the 300 million Indian mobile subscribers.
iXiGO Mobile searches across flights and hotels in India and features a click-to-call booking mechanism enabling people to speak directly with the call centres of respective airlines and hotel booking providers.
On future plans, Aloke Bajpai, founder and CEO, iXiGO said, "Next, we will be actively signing up distribution partners for this service – operators, mobile VAS providers and mobile media companies."
According to the company, iXiGO Mobile is compatible with all major handsets with a GPRS-enabled subscription.
"It adapts well to the phone form factors while retaining richness of features found in our Internet version, including photos, maps, and filters. We have also optimised the pages for slower GPRS connections," stated the company.
