“Google’s patented method starts with sending search queries to the server with location information attached. The location information could come from user input (a search for “pizza 60640,” for example), a static saved location for that device, or GPS data from the phone. The server would then respond with results based around that location, formatted for a mobile device.

However, the results would not be displayed in list format as they are in Google’s current mobile search. The phone would instead display something resembling a small version of Google Maps with the search results displayed using markers on the map, just like they are on Google Maps when viewed on a PC. The map could be zoomed in to different degrees, depending on how many results there are. Google wants to display up to nine results at a time for the user to choose from, and those nine results could be located in a very condensed geographic area or spread out. Why nine? Because each result can be mapped to a number button on the phone’s key pad.”
