Google Search by SMS in India

November 22nd, 2008

Google has enabled local search by means of SMS to give the power of information into the hands of more than 100 million Indians who use SMS regularly.

Google Mobile SMS lets you search for local businesses [restaurants, pubs, retail stores, salon, etc], just like an yellow page on your mobile, train PNR info, stock quotes, currency calculator, breaking news, flight status etc.

All you have to do is send your query to 9773300000 from your mobile. [local SMS for Mumbaikars and STD SMS for outsiders]
For example, you can just send a SMS mumbai ahmadabad train to 97733 00000 and get listing of all the trains. You can test out Google’s Mobile Search service on the Web before you decide to start using it from your mobile. [Basically the query which you do on the site is the query which you send as SMS]

Mobile India reports that, Google has already patented this mobile search service and should be an eye opener to other aspirants. In any case others should first come up with a good search engine core and then provide service.
