Google Releases Product Search for iPhone and Android

Ever since Smokey Robinson reminded us that our mamas told us to shop around, finding the best bargain has been an American pastime. That pastime has gotten easier in recent years with fancy mobile phones giving us access to product information such as price and reviews at our ever-instant fingertips.

Now, Google is trying to be part of the on-the-go purchase decision process. They’ve made product search available to Google.com searchers on the iPhone and Android.
