A smartphone could make it easier to find local businesses

Consumers may find it easier than ever to get in touch with local businesses through using Google on a smartphone.

People considering selling an old mobile could be tempted to put the cash that they receive towards a new smartphone handset.

Searching for local businesses and restaurants may be one thing that users would regularly use their mobile internet for, but rather than wanting to track down the website for the company they could prefer to find a phone number.

Businesses are now able to add a clickable number to their mobile advertisements, meaning that users of mobiles such as the iPhone, Android or other smartphones can simply click on the number to make the call.

Adverts are also tailored to the user based on their location, insuring that they receive the information that is most relevant to their enquiry.

Mobile operator 3 UK has recently revealed its 10,000th 3G site as part of its ongoing expansion scheme to provide mobile internet coverage across the UK.
