Amazon.com has just announced a new service that allows you to purchase items from them using SMS text messages. The service is called Amazon TextBuyIt.
Text an item to AMAZON (262966) and Amazon will send you a text message with the top 2 results. Reply with a 1 or 2 (indicating which item you want) and Amazon’s ordering system will call to confirm and complete the order.
You can also get more results (above the first 2) by replying with ‘m‘. Amazon will return up to 8 items. Get details on a specific item by replying with the item number, followed by a d. For example, ‘2d‘ would return details on the 2nd item.
You can search by item name, author, artists, or by ISBN/UPC code. Now, when you see a book that want you can order it from Amazon on the spot.
Very cool service.
