Consumers are free to search using generic keywords like ‘mini ipods’ or ‘dell dimension’, but are recommended to be as specific as possible, using the SKU number for best results."</i><br /><br /> <img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/sms_img1_sm.gif" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/> <br /><br />Smarter.com claims that its SMS based search engine is superior to the recently launched Google service, because it returns the lowest price for the user specified product. They even have a side by side comparison of the two services, check it out over <a href="http://www.smarter.com/sms/stackup.html">here.</a> I am all for competition and free services. ;-)
