The Internet Is Everywhere

It's everywhere. You can't escape it. Information is flowing freely nearly everywhere go today, thanks in large part to WiFi Laptops and the new generation of Smart Phones. Blackberry, iPhone and other smart phones are about to get a run for their money from Google. The much awaited Google Phone is said to be coming this October (retailed by T-Mobile?). The Google Phone runs on Google's own "Android" operating system, which is an open-source, Linux based operating system for phones. Why is that important? Google, is the first to go open-source in the mobile world, and has unleashed the ability for almost any programmer to create gadgets for a cell phone operating system. This has resulted in over 1700 gadgets built for the operating system before it's even gotten out of testing. This means that this phone will likely be more powerful than any other from day 1, and it's going to change the way people use the web.

Add this new wave to the already huge number of iPhones and Blackberrys and you get a tsunami of information flowing through the mobile web.

My advice, get ready for the next new wave of mobile users! After the Christmas buying season, there will be a huge number of smart phones in circulation and a rapidly growing number of Mobile Local ("MoLo") Searches happening. To benefit from these, businesses need to evaluate where they are showing up in local search and make sure they've done the basic submissions to Local Seach engines. 2009 will be the year of Local Search.
