HP Labs India is learned to be working on a new technology that will allow users to access contents of a website through commands sent via an SMS text message or using voice commands. According to a report published on the ReadWriteWeb, the new technology is built with the help of a Cloud-based application developed by HP named Tasklet.

However, this technology may not be used to visit any random website. The SiteOnMobile feature will require website publishers to develop tiny widgets of contents called tasklets that are mapped to specific SMS text messages or voice commands that reside on the HP Tasklet server. Consequently, every time a user sends an SMS to access a particular website, the website tasklet that is mapped to the particular SMS text message is retrieved and sent to the user as an SMS. Alternately, users may also choose to receive IVR based voice outputs.

HP is currently working with select publishers in this new technology. The company has stated that the focus is currently on testing and popularizing the service and that monetization is presently not a priority.
