Uber Mobile Requests for BlackBerry and beyond!
*Update – August 2012* – We now have car type selection on m.uber.com ! Simply toggle between car types in the drop down menu to order Uber BLACK, SUV, UberX (SF, NYC) and TAXI (CHI)!
No iPhone? No Android? No worries.
We’re excited to announce that our latest product, m.uber.com has been built with love and care for BlackBerry, Windows Phone and beyond! We want to make the Uber experience available to everyone, regardless of phone or carrier. That’s why we’ve introduced mobile web requests to let you request an Uber at any time from any phone.
Now, you can get an Uber quickly and easily through m.uber.com, just as you would using either our iPhone or Android apps. If you’re familiar with our SMS interface, you’ll be right at home with m.uber.com. And if you’re new to Uber, m.uber.com will still be a breeze. :) Here’s what you’ll see:
And when you make requests, you can also save favorite locations for places you frequently request from, such as home or work.
We love hearing from our riders, so contact us with any feedback or find me on Twitter at @minarad. We’re always looking to enhance the Uber experience and we hope that you’ll enjoy our newest product. Uber on!
Today, we are excited to announce that Uber will give $5.5M to support a new robotics faculty chair as well as three fellowships at CMU. This gift is part of a partnership we announced earlier this year. In addition, we’re pumped to be part of a growing innovation ecosystem in Pittsburgh that includes world leading research institutions and companies, as well as an increasing number of start-ups.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
