Copernic is of course out of the running with Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO) when it comes to internet search but it could very well fit an intriguing niche - the search engine between the mobile device and the personal computer. Being able to access all of my files on my computer from a mobile device solves a couple of memory conundrums - do I ever have enough memory on a mobile device and can I remember to save items on my mobile device?
The issue is whether Copernic can get a buzz around this technology and perhaps, moreover, would some of the other players be interested in buying this technology? Would Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) or RIM (RIMM) partner to package the technology? Would this technology give Google a PC/Mobil device presence that it lacks?
Either way Copernic, like Local.com, remains a very interesting speculative opportunity.
