Ask launches mobile search in the US

Ask (formerly Ask Jeeves) have released a new mobile service that I would loosely describe as Ask’s mobile portal. It is commendable for its simplicity and ease of use.

It obviously also includes a mobile version of the Ask search engine which is also very minimalist. So minimalist in fact, that there aren’t any text ads! I won’t lose sleep over it though, I doubt they could hold out that long. Certainly if Yahoo!’s addition of mobile search ads earlier in the month is anything to go by.

E-consultancy have reported that there is no due date for a UK version yet.
