Both Yahoo! and Google today announced they will make an even stronger push into mobile search and applications. Google last night announced they will partner with Motorola to enable "one button search" on select Motorola phones. Google also said they expect more people to search for more content on mobile phones in the future, eventually surpassing PC search. Yahoo! today announced software that extends their mobile presence on S60 phones to more of the search giant's services including photos and local content. In addition Yahoo! announced it will partner with Motorola to preload IM, email and other Yahoo! services on Motorola phones.

good to hear..

This is good to hear... I have used googles text message service many times to find phone numbers for restaurants and address's. If you dont know about this you can send a text to 46645(googl) and put the name of the business you are looking for and the area code you want to find the business in, and enter that in the body. After sending you will shortly receive a text message giving you the results for the closest places to that area code.

Google Local?

Just got back from a trip Google local found our hotel, where the wedding reception was, and our friends new house.
I found it lacking only a few features and I don't know they are even possible to add without a lot of help from the Cell makers.
1. Tie it into the location/GPS system.
2. Allow you directions. When you exit out they are lost.
3. Select locations from your address book.
If I am in a town where an old friend happens to live it would be great for me to not have to type in his address for the search and or directions.
