Google Announces ‘Place Pages’ for Android Phones

Google has announced the release of their mobile-optimized Place Pages for Android handsets.  Users now access all of the same great information found on the desktop client in a tidy and mobile friendly format.  Searching for a business or place in will bring up location, ratings, hours of operation, pictures, and what the public is saying about the place. 

If you are looking at a restaurant you’ll be able to see price levels, dining style, what to wear, and whether or not alcohol is served.  And since it’s Google we’re talking about here, there are handy maps to guide you to the location with panning, zooming, and street level.  Use Place Pages to learn more about pretty much any business, point of interest, neighborhoods, and landmark.
