Mobile start-up offers snap-and-sell classifieds

Posted by Mark Raby

Orlando (FL) - New mobile software company iqzone has announced what it is calling the first mobile service for "broadcasting and searching classified ads from mobile phones."  The service went live today as part of the company's presence at the CTIA Wireless convention.

The mobile classified service lets users take a picture of something with their cell phone camera and automatically insert it into a template for a mobile advertisement that can be seen by other cell phone users.

To submit an ad, users can send the description to a specific e-mail address.  Listings can be seen on a mobile version of iqzone's website.  This means the only software needed is a mobile browser, which has become common among most major cell phone carriers.
