Google Launches Google Local In China

I've been meaning to mention long-time search marketer Shakil Khan's new blog on life in China, Chinawhite, where he's going to be touching on search out there. I had it as part of a wrap-up on various China items for next week. But Threadwatch notes that Shak's spotted a Pacific Epoch story on a new Google Local China service in beta. I tried cars in Beijing in English, and have no idea what I got back -- but it does look like local listings for the area, along with a map.
