Of course such basic information could and should be enriched with for instance relevant data from specific web sites. This precisely is the point of the Web 2.0 mashups of content and software.

A detailed overview of the functionalities which will characterize our mobile future (alas without MARA being mentioned) was given earlier this year in the American magazine Business 2.0.
