Yada Yada is a wireless provider that is also using the increasingly popular Minstrel S Springboard module. The interesting thing about Yada Yada is that you can use most of their software, like a web browser that can support HTML frames, without needing their module. Here's a rundown of their features from their press release:
  • Wireless Web - With YadaYada's Wireless Web service, users can access everything they want from the Web, including e-mail and any HTML-created Web site in the world. YadaYada's proprietary Internet browsing technology will enable users to access every HTML Web site on the Internet -- not just sites that have been optimized for PDAs, but true "what you see is what you get" Web surfing -- including sites built using HTML frames technology.
  • My YadaYada Mobile Web Portal - Using the free "My YadaYada" Mobile Web Portal, users can create their own personalized page by selecting information categories, such as local, national and financial news, local weather forecasts, stock quotes, favorite sports teams' scores and entertainment. This personalized page can be downloaded for free through desktop synchronization or wirelessly using the YadaYada Wireless Web service.
  • QuikSnaps - YadaYada's innovative "QuikSnaps" allow users to download any Web site right onto their PDA - without a modem! In addition to YadaYada's list of top sites, users can choose their favorite sites in categories such as business, entertainment, headline news, sports, travel, weather, stock quotes, and entertainment. Content from more than 200 sites will be accessible using YadaYada's free QuikSnaps service
The software is free and the Wireless Modem has a SRP of $299 but will be $149 for a limited time. Everything I have read about the product shows that it will work with the Visor and Visor Deluxe. Discuss this news here.
