Windows Mobile gets location-based searches thanks to Google's GeolocationAPI


Google search on Windows Mobile -- full list of supported devices can be found by following the read link -- just beefed up local searching with the same tech used by Google Maps for Mobile. By grabbing information about the cell towers near you, searches are tailored to your location rather than you having to enter one. For example, entering "Taco Bell" would find the store nearest you, not all of em in your home town. The service is currently only supported in the US and the UK, but as with everything Google's up to -- like world domination -- it'll show up in your locale soon enough. We're fresh out of Windows Mobile devices today, so feel free to hit us up with your experiences.
