The Kelsey blog reports Google launching local for mobiles:

[google.com...]

Can someone from the US try it out and report back please.

Google Local for mobile doesn't currently support Verizon, Nextel, Alltel, or U.S. Cellular phones, or Blackberry and Palm devices.

Wish I could...

I have Nextel - can't try it out.

However, the fact that Google can now have users who aren't just on a computer, but are anywhere in the states is a large leap forward in integrating their services into the offline world.

One of the features is call a business from within a search result - seems a pretty good place to integrate a pay per call offering.

PPCall - Bingo

Give them a fast, free way to find those PPCall adverts on their mobile - combine it with the Google brand and let the money roll in (assuming you have the PPCall advertisers)

A small issue in the UK is that 0800 call are not free on mobiles. Is the scenario different in the US?

Inbound - I'm in the UK and have managed to trial it out albeit on US data as they've yet to roll it out over here. Give it a whirl...
