Google announced a new mobile search feature to find local restaurants, stores and other businesses via cell phones or other mobile consumer devices.
Google Local for mobile will enable users to see 10 local search results. The service, which integrates the location of the businesses in search results on a map, also provides addresses, phone numbers and driving directions.
The Mobile Local Search is available at http://mobile.google.com/local. Currently it only indexes businesses in the United States and Canada.
