Ticketmaster launched mobile service last week that will allow customers to search for information on a variety of events and make ticket purchases or restaurant reservations online. The “Local Intelligence” service will allow users to create profiles based on interests, so that the system will notify them automatically when tickets for a favorite sporting event or concert goes on sale.

Ticketmaster has teamed with AvantGo, Ericsson, Nokia and Palm Computing, among others, to offer the service.
