The gwabbit for BlackBerry service is a combination of a device-client, and a back-end server. The client monitors opened emails, and checks whether they seem to include the signature of the sender.
If so, the client sends the information to the server for processing, and the server returns the results to the client. If a signature is indeed found, the client then prompts the user that contact information was found, and asks if the user wants to save it. It also searches the local address book to see if an address entry exists for that sender, and if so, asks the user whether he wants the information merged into the existing contact, or he prefers a new contact be created. If the information found does not add anything to the existing information, no prompt will appear. This architecture takes the load of the processing off the device, and enables gwabbit to constantly improve the recognition, without frequent client upgrades.
