Yellow Pages on iPhone

The famous Yellow Pages phone directory, owned by Apple partner AT&T, is now available in a format specifically tailored to iPhones and iPod touches. Users must navigate to the Yellow Pages website via the Safari browser, where a formatted version of the site appears that allows users to quickly start a search or input a place and category. The site also provides access to ratings, maps and directions, and in the case of the iPhone, the ability to dial a number directly from a listing.

AT&T says it has also made available an optimized WAP website, a downloadable client for 20 other AT&T phones, and the ability to text a search query to YP411. Conversely, users browsing the website can have results texted to a cellphone, complete with driving directions.

    Yes, ... but--

    While the Yellow pages may be available for other cell phones, how many times has it been accessed by them? How many cell phone users can figure out how to use their phones that way?

    And then how many iPhone users will be using the site? :-)

    I bet that this iPhone formated site really chaffs Ballmer's a*s!! :-)
