>> I'm Jessica Dolcourt from CNET Download.com and today we're taking a first look at Cellfire. Cellfire is a mobile app that offers coupons for local, regional and national retailers based on your zip code. Here you can see a list of participating vendors. Hollywood Video and TGIFriday's are national chains, but North Beach Pizza and Ichiraku Sushi can only be found here in the Bay area. The number on the right shows you how many coupons offers there are and when you click in, you can further see the details of the offers and when it expires. You can often use the same coupon more than once before they expires and you can also see the different locations, but you can't pop them on the map. Redeeming the coupon is easy and you often have the option to redeem it in the store or over the phone. What you'll do is you will select on the phone that you wanna redeem it and where and then a bar code will pop up that you can either show to the cashier or read aloud. I've been showing this to you on a sleek smart phone running Windows Mobile 6, but Cellfire also works on cellphones with an Internet browser like this Razr. It obviously doesn't look as good, but it works the same way. Most coupons are for dining and services, but Cellfire tells me that they're planning to expand into apparel too. If you wanna get Cellfire, you can download it for Windows Mobile, BlackBerry and Symbian by going to CNET Download.com or for your cellphone you can just point the browser to www.cellfire.com. I'm Jessica Dolcourt and this has been Cellfire. ^M00:01:23 [ Music ]
