Google Local… Mobile

googleYes, I know two Google posts in a row is a little much… but what can I say, I love Google, and they keep adding new stuff!

Do you use Google from your mobile phone or from your wifi enabled PDA? I know I sure do! Well, now they offer their “Google Local” in a handy small (pda/mobile phone screen) size. So if you need to know where to find the nearest pizza parlor and you know your zip code, it’s as easy as pulling up the new Google Local Mobile on your phone or pda. You can also get driving directions (no mobile maps yet).

After playing around with it a little more, I realized that there is a small map displayed when you do a local search. I couldn’t find a map for the directions, but they do show you little tabs on a map identifying the locations in your search.
