Hewlett-Packard’s research division in the country, HP Labs India, have developed a new service called SiteOnMobile that allows access to the Internet on basic mobile phones using only SMS and voice commands. The service uses HP’s patent-pending technology ‘TaskLets’ to deliver only the brief content relevant to a user’s requirement to his mobile phone instead of delivering the whole web page, and thus enabling millions of people in India, most of whom carry low-end cell phones, to access the internet for basic tasks such as booking an appointment with a doctor or checking the status of medical reports. SiteOnMobile also allows website owners to easily develop apps around Tasklets for free to reach these new users and potentially expand their business.
