Google Mobile Shopping Delivers Hyper-Local Search Results

There’s no doubt in my mind that Google “gets” mobile. This doesn’t happen 100% of the time (as evidenced by the lack of a mobile story for the Google Maps for Mobile bicycle routing service released this week). But, the percentage of on target efforts is very very high. Here’s another one worth looking at: Hyper-local results for shopping searches.

In stock nearby? Look for the blue dots.

The hyper-local shopping search results looked pretty good to me in my tests. Note that this feature is only available for Android based phones, iPhone, and webOS based phones (Palm Pre line).
