edgeio Classifieds Listings Extended to Cell Phones Using the Gumiyo Platform

Classifieds on-the-go merges the two fastest growing technology segments--online classifieds and mobile phones

Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) June 19, 2007 -- Gumiyo and edgeio announced today their cooperation to bring online classifieds into the mobile space. Commencing with edgeio's extensive real estate section, Gumiyo will deliver listings to interested people on the go, making those listing accessible to mobile, online buyers.

"edgeio has built a significant classified listings platform. We have APIs for inbound and outbound traffic. Gumiyo is leveraging our APIs to deliver a compelling experience to sellers and buyers, across the mobile platform." Said edgeio CEO Keith Teare. "In the future it should be possible for Gumiyo to build mobile applications across all listings verticals, using MMS, SMS, WAP, Widgets and many other user interfaces."

"Our partnership with edgeio is very complementary and it makes perfect sense," says Shuki Lehavi, CEO and co-founder of Gumiyo. "edgeio is committed to innovation in the world of online classifieds, and has enabled a rich set of open APIs that we can use.
