Looking For A Wii U? TalkTo Will Help You Find One

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For people eager to buy the just-launched Wii U,  TalkTo ( has created the FindaWiiU web page, which can send a text to local stores to find out if they have one available. 

The FindaWiiU page ( uses TalkTo's innovative text-any-business technology. A shopper can simply go to the page, type in his or her location, and FindaWiiU shows the local stores that may stock it. Shoppers can then type a text message to each store and get a response back within minutes. It's much better than driving to a store that's already sold out, calling and waiting on hold, or searching endlessly online. TalkTo's FindaWiiU makes getting a Wii U from a local store more of a sure thing.    

TalkTo is a Web and mobile app for iPhone and Android that allows users to send text messages to any business – and get a text back. The app makes it easier to find and buy things locally, put desired items on hold, and check prices, making the typically stressful task of holiday shopping a snap. The Wii U is among this season's most desired holiday gifts, and the FindaWiiU page will make buying one simpler.

"The Wii U is hot this year and they're going to fly off the shelves," said TalkTo CEO Stuart Levinson. "We want to make it easy for people to get their hands on the WiiU, and to shop local. Now it's possible, by texting stores with TalkTo."

TalkTo launched its free Web app last week following the initial introduction of its mobile apps when the company was selected as finalist at TechCrunch Disrupt 2011. Check out a video at

To make texting any business possible, TalkTo works in the background to find the best way to contact the business and deliver your message. It can use chat, SMS, email, or even an old-fashioned phone call if necessary. TalkTo then makes sure you receive a text response.
