Yesterday was the launch of Goojet. Goojet is a portal of services for both the PC and Mobiles. in this case the idea is  that you use Goojet as a portal for microsized overlay widgets that are pretty much widgetized web pages and web services. the default is to go for the mobile web version of the services on their gallery of services.

You browse from the over 2000 Goojets (as a way to say the have widgetized mobile web services in a overlay for the pc or as a dedicated page in mobiles) and once you have seen something you like you only need to drag and drop it into your preview goojet phone dashboard:

Once you do, the service will appear in your mobile goojet dashboard. very easy. think of it as platfom independent version of Nokia Widsets Widgets and you will have the right idea.

You can also use any of those service you use in your phone directly in the pc. it don`t offers that much value given your inside a browser but it is like a Webtop full of bookmarked and ready to use web pages and without ever leaving that dashboard. life fluid stand alone Web page browsing inside a Webtop.

Goojet is a nice implementation of what nokia has done with widsets with the difference googjet can be used in any anywhere. even then. i wish they would have launched earlier. but for such a growing market like is the mobile web and the mobile world. this is a service that will be useful for anyone that is not in a recent high end smartphone or a iphone. so that makes it usable for 90% of the worldwide mobile market. fair enough right?.

    Thanks a lot for writing about goojet.
    I agree with you, we would have loved to have launched before… However, the timing is quite perfect since users start to consider mobile web and carriers start to propose interesting data plans.
    And we hope smartphone users will also see an interest in Goojet, same thing for iphone users, as soon as we develop the specific version…

    @cedric: Now that is wanted to know Cedric. i have been testing all sort of mobile services lately and from 10 independent (not from device brand) i tried. in terms of all phones i think it is safe to say that goojet is the best one. for the case of WM specific phones i do find zumobi your only competition. so yeah seeing a WM version and a iphone version of Goojet will be great. let me know when that happens.
