abphone is a mobile search engine that focuses on multimedia content that you might want on your phone including:


  • images – photos from a range of photo sources including flickr and social networks such as friendster
  • video – specially adapated mobile video from the likes of Daily Motion and Youtube
  • games – provided from a range of free and premium mobile games publishers such as Glu, Gameloft Twistbox, Hovr and Greystripe

The service is operated by a French company and was launched in 2005.  Abphone have a basic web-front end for the service but mainly operate through a mobile web front-end at m.abphone.com.

abphone has a great user-interface which is designed specifically for mobile – you can quickly access the content you are looking for.  The service has become especially popular with users looking for images, for example to use as free screensavers or wallpapers for their phone.[…]

With google increasingly focusing on offering a standard web search service to mobile users it’s really important that mobile-only search engines like abphone are developed to offer something more specific to mobile devices.  With traffic growing all the time abphone is in a great position to benefit from the growth in mobile search and mobile internet.

You can find abphone on mjelly which is a directory of the top mobile sites other stuff including mobile softwares and free message tones
