Mobile search startup, Medio Systems, has just announced it is to benefit from US$30m in investment funding according to SeattlePI.com.

On Medio itself –
Created specifically for mobile, the Medio Search System combines an intuitive, effortless user interface with powerful recommendation and personalization technologies, for a search experience that keeps subscribers coming back.
On the web, a search normally results in pages of links, leaving users to browse for information. On a mobile device, the time and effort required for a traditional search prevents subscribers from finding and purchasing the mobile content they want. Medioâ€™s technologies provide a click-saving experience, returning answers instead of links. And Medioâ€™s proprietary ranking algorithms balance the subscriberâ€™s preferences, device, location and other information to present personalized, relevant results.
