Digby shopping service for BlackBerry mobile devices

"Mobile devices have become an integral part of everyday life, with features such as cameras, calendars, address books and wireless access to email and the Internet. Users however, are continuing to look for more mobile services," said Dave Sikora, President and CEO of 30 Second Software. "With Digby, we have created a shopping service that offers an effortless yet rich buying experience on BlackBerry handsets, enabling users to easily buy products for themselves and others while they are mobile." Digby's product catalog was developed in association with its retail partners to deliver an e-commerce platform optimized for mobile devices. Current strategic partners include FTD Flowers, Godiva Chocolatier, Vermont Teddy Bears and Capalbo's Giftbaskets with new retailers expected to join Digby on a regular basis. The Digby catalog is updated daily to both ensure freshness of product content and enable merchant specific promotions of certain products.

"The market is ripe for e-commerce to explode on mobile devices," said Ian Gilliot, Managing Director, IGR Research, "but merchants have been challenged on how to deliver an experience as rich as the desktop to these devices. Applications such as Digby bridge that gap by delivering the type of rich content that users demand. To BlackBerry users, their devices are essential lifestyle convenience tools which contain all of their personal and professional information. Digby is a service that leverages this lifestyle information to enable BlackBerry users to be more productive."
