Upingme wants to mobilize classified ads

Upingme is a new free classified ads service in the UK that allows people to post adverts directly from their mobile phones. They call it “Classified ads 2.0″ because of Upingme’s real-time and active (rather than passive) “nature.”

Users post their adverts by sending an SMS text “U” a space and then a message to +41-79-381-6010. After the message is sent, Upingme forwards it to the people who have what you want or who want to meet you. For instance, using Upingme you’ll be able to quickly and easily sell your stuff and/or services, find a place to stay, a party to go to, or anything that you can imagine.

In order to use Upingme, you can use any mobile phone that can send and receive text messages — meaning most mobile phones sold today will work with the service. And the best part (at least for the people living in the UK), following the successful London trial, Upingme is rolled out nationwide with the world launch to follow in 2008… More information is available on Upingme’s website.
