Vote for ShopSavvy in the 2008 Crunchies

By Startup Lawyer

I normally don’t promote client achievements–I’m proud of my clients but feel weird blogging about their (non-privileged) information. But it’s not often that one of my clients gets nominated for a Crunchie.

ShopSavvy, developed by Big in Japan Inc., is a nominee for a 2008 Crunchie in the “Best Mobile App” Category.

The Crunchies is an annual competition and award ceremony to recognize and celebrate the most compelling startups, internet and technology innovations of the year. They are co-hosted by GigaOm, VentureBeat, Silicon Alley Insider, and TechCrunch, while the internet community is invited to choose who wins.

Here’s what ShopSavvy does on the Google Phone:

ShopSavvy is a shopping assistant developed for Google’s Android mobile phone platform and is one of T-Mobile’s featured applications in their 2008/2009 US and EU launch. Users can scan the bar code of any product using their phone’s built-in camera. ShopSavvy will then search for the best prices online and through the inventories of nearby, local stores using the phone’s built-in GPS. ShopSavvy won Google’s Android Developer Challenge and is available in Google’s Market.

So if you get the chance, vote for ShopSavvy.
