Customers of Vodafone who use Symbian Series 60 devices will now be able to search for the cheapest available product price via an embedded price comparison application. Sccope enables users to text the name of the product they are searching for to 62555 with the application returning a list via text of comparable prices and where those products can be purchased from.
By integrating the Sccope widget into a device, users will be able to gain access to the service by simply clicking on the embedded Sccope icon making it faster and easier to do a price comparison.
Sccope will initially be preloaded and available to Vodafone customers who use a Nokia 6124, 6210, N95 8GB, N96 and the N78. Retailers that are directly linked to Sccope include Amazon, John Lewis, Waterstone's, Currys, Dixons, Tesco Direct and Borders.
