HP Labs India
Siteonmobile is a pilot service from HP Labs India that enables SMS and voice access to existing websites.. More than 50% of the mobile phones today are ultra low end, with just voice and text messaging capabilities. Our solution enables these low end phones to access the web without GPRS connectivity on the phones. Furthermore, it is very simple to enable an existing website to be accessed over SMS or voice.
While initial barriers to internet consumption - connectivity and affordability, are fast disappearing, a significant issue preventing web consumption today is the complexity of web tools. Each website imposes its own interaction metaphor, and user needs to express their intent in different ways across different web sites.
Simplifying Web Access and Interaction project aims
to radically simplify web experiences that will help everyone realize
the value of the web. A user’s web interactions need to be
encapsulated so that the interaction is personally familiar, uncluttered
and accessible with minimal effort. We believe web interaction should
become as simple as using a phone, watching TV or reading a magazine
