Abstract

See full text

A communication system (100) employs a method for informing a user of a communication device (e.g., 101) where to obtain a product. The communication system determines an approximate location of the communication device and whether a particular requested product or one or more other potentially desirable products are available in a general vicinity of the device. When the particular or potentially desirable product is so available, a context engine server (109) of the communication system conveys a product information request and optionally other purchaser-related information to multiple product providers (120). The context engine server receives responses to the product information request from at least some of the product providers, wherein at least some of the responses preferably include offers to pay respective advertising fees. The context engine server generates a list of product providers based on the responses and provides the list to the communication device for display to the device user.
