This paper describes one practical approach for creating context-aware browser for mobile subscribers. Our model uses mobile phone as proximity sensor. In our concept, any existing or even especially created Wi-Fi hot spot or Bluetooth node could be used as presence sensor that can open (discover) access for some content. In our approach we can discover hyper local data as info snippets that are valid (relevant) for mobile subscribers being at this moment nearby the detected wireless nodes. And an appropriate mobile service (context-aware browser) can present that information to mobile subscribers. As the potential use-cases for the proposed approach we can mention for example news and deals delivery in retail, delivering news feeds for office centers and campuses, Smart City projects, personal classifieds and real world games.
