The article discusses the author's experience of purchasing a video iPod through his cellular telephones. He encountered some difficulties in using Froogle, the mobile shopping tool of Google, to compare prices. The beta search engine of Yahoo was a little better than Froogle but he had a hard time browsing though advertisements and graphics using his Palm Treo 700w Smartphone. There was no way to sort results when he used his Samsung telephone. The PriceGrabber mobile tool worked better than the first two services but it does not provide links.
