You may recall us featuring Webaroo a few weeks back – it’s a program that lets you take areas of the web and browse it later, offline and at your convenience. Well, Webaroo is now available to use with smartphones featuring the Windows Mobile 5.0 platform, with the BenQ-Siemens P51 smartphone being the first device to be bundled with it when it launches later this year.
Webaroo means web searching without the need to connect at all. It features ‘web packs’ of content, covering a variety of subjects, such as world news, sport, major cities, Wikipedia and more – each containing thousands of relevant webpages identified by Webaroo’s – sites that have broad coverage of a topic, but are fairly small in size.. In one simple step, you can also select and download your favorite web sites to save and search at your leisure by syncing your smartphone with a laptop.
The BenQ-Siemens P51 includes web packs covering Frankfurt, London, Paris, Milan, Taipei and Amsterdam, with more available free at the Webaroo web site.
