Google Local Search, Mobile edition

Google has added a mobile version of their local-search service to their lineup of mobile applications available from devices equipped with XHTML-enabled browsers. Enter your search term, as well as the location or zip code to limit your search, and receive a mobile-sized Google Map with details listed below. You can:

* Locate a business's exact location on the map by zooming in and out;
* Get driving directions to your desired location;
* Place a call directly to a business by highlighting and selecting its phone number.

Google's approach to local search involves using yellow page and business directory information from third party providers, and integrating it with information about individual businesses from Google's main web page index.
