Boopsie Mobile Search

Mobile search, despite the presence of giants such as Google (GOOG), Yahoo (YHOO), Microsoft (MSFT) and AOL (TWX), is wide open. Any startup has as good a chance as any of the the big boys, just as long as they have cutting-edge technology and enough business acumen to capitalize on it. One such startup that is getting a lot of buzz is Boopsie -– yes, you read that right — Boopsie.

The search query on Boopsie gets rolling with a “smart prefix” — which means that instead of typing out the whole word, you only need to type the word’s first few letters. Start typing “Caltrain,” for example, and you get a list of options to choose from, including the Caltrain schedule.
