Google is making its mobile search even better by introducing Place Pages for Mobile. Place Pages for Mobile allows Android (and iPhone) users to find details of restaurants, businesses, etc. in one simple page. You can get basic info like store hours, pictures, and phone numbers along with the more in-depth details like user reviews, ratings, and tips from different online sources (citysearch, zagat, etc). We tried it out and it's pretty darn nifty. Since it's optimized for mobile phones, all information is displayed in an easy-to-read format.

You can try out Place Pages by going to google.com on your Android browser and searching for a restaurant or business. If you click on the local listing results, it'll take you to its Place Page. How do you guys like it? Think you'll use it?

Google introduces Place Pages for mobile

If the ability was there to zoom on mobile pages... i'd be all over it. Without the ability to zoom... mobile pages just, for lack of a better word, suck.

Heh, reading them isn't the problem... it's getting my goofy, uncoordinated, over-sized index finger on the right link that makes me cringe when I see a 'mobile' page... to each his own I suppose.
