PriceBaba is a location based search engine, helping the real world shoppers to search mobile prices in their vicinity. It is an intelligence engine that redefines the way one shops. It is a shopping research platform for the real world, which solves a simple yet large problem of finding the right products at the right price in your local area. PriceBaba currently lists 350+ retailers in over 5 cities and have over 700 products in the mobile category. The pricebaba came into existence when the founder got fed-up of people asking him for prices for mobile, laptops etc because of his association with OnlyGizmos.com and retail since 2002. Thus the idea was born & overtime it was nurtured and finally came up with a shopping intelligence engine.
