Vindigo and inshop.com Partner

Internet shopping infomediary inshop.com and Vindigo, a developer of personal navigation
applications for hand-held devices, are teaming up to bring inshop’s local
store listings to Vindigo users.


Vindigo’s free mobile service for Palm Inc. and Palm-compatible hand-held
devices provides users with local content about where to eat, shop and play
whenever they may be.


In June, Vindigo users in New York will have access to inshop’s local store
listings from their mobile device. As Vindigo expands to additional cities in
June, including Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., inshop
will provide its shopping information for those cities.


Financial
arrangements between the companies were not disclosed.


Shopping information in Vindigo is organized into several categories, from
men’s and women’s wear to hats, scarves and eyewear. Each listing includes
location and contact information including store name, address and telephone
number.


inshop, a privately held company backed by AOL Ventures, Hudson Ventures,
Lazard Technology Partners and Gelardin USA LLC, provides shopping
information specific to 52 cities.


Vindigo’s core product, also called Vindigo, transforms Palm Inc. organizers
and compatibles into personal navigators. Vindigo is a privately held company
backed by General Atlantic Partners LLC, Flatiron Partners, Carlin Ventures,
and private investors.
