Hands-on video of Shorthand Mobile

We’ve covered Shorthand Mobile before but we thought it would be better to just show you how the SMS service works.

The service utilizes SMS to bring app-like features to feature phones and entry-level devices. You can get sports scores from ESPN, restaurant details from Yelp, news from The Wall Street Journal and more content on your phone without a data plan. You’ll also be able to use it to interact with companies, as you can order a Subway sandwich through SMS. While I don’t know how many of our smartphone-loving readers will utilize this service, it has the potential to be huge in emerging markets like India and China.
