OpenTable.com to let users book restaurant tables from their BlackBerry or other phones online
Whatever it is, there has to be an online counterpart. We’ve seen that with the newspapers, radio, and TV. Even booking tables at your favorite restaurant has made the transition to the world wide web.
Open Table Inc is going to introduce a new feature to its already existing online restaurant booking web site that will let BlackBerry users use the service on their phones. Other mobile devices will also be supported.
Open Table’s mobile site, according to CEO Jeff Jordan, will target diners that are “affluent, professional, time-constrained,” and want to reserve a spot while they’re on the move or without a computer at hand.
OpenTable’s network lists up to 8,500 partner restaurants which you can check to see for free tables from the comfort of your computer using nothing but a web browser. Not sure about this being something “fun” for people, but this sure is one very useful service.
