Mocoblog brought to my attention a press release from a few days ago about Verizon’s SMS 411 service. It’s notable only for it’s obvious disconnect from the marketplace. With very strong offerings from Google, Yahoo, and 4Info out there, all of them free, and no barriers to entry (typing SUPER is no easier than GOOGL, YAHOO, or 4INFO), it’s hard to see why they think they can be successful.
Seems likely this is an example of Verizon’s lack of communication between divisions. SuperPages and Verizon Wireless are completely separate groups.
