Google Product Search

You get all geared up in hopes to buy the gadget you like at a store in the city. After making your way through the hustle and bustle of the city streets and finally finding a place to park your car, you found out that the store didn’t have your dream gadget in stock. Has this ever happened to you?

Good news people! Google has just released a new feature for Product Search for mobiles. All you have to do is head over to on your mobile browser, then tap on More and select “Shopping”. Search for something you like, and if a blue dot appears in a product listing, it means that there’s a store nearby you that has the product in stock. If you click on the adjacent “In stock nearby” link, you’ll be brought to the seller’s page with more information on the product availability, whether it’s “In Stock” or has “Limited Availability”. Participating retailers include Best Buy, Sears, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn or West Elm. If you have enabled My Location or manually specified a location on your cell phone, you will see how far away the store is from you.
