Last December, Vic Gundotra, Google Vice President of Engineering, demonstrated a preview version of Product Search for mobile devices with local inventory, which lets you see right in your search results whether items are in stock at nearby stores. And today, Google has announced that this feature is available - featuring products that is sold by participating retailers including Best Buy, Sears, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn or West Elm. Just look for the blue dots in the search results to see if it's available in a local store around you. Tap on the adjacent "In stock nearby" link and you'll see whether the item is "In Stock" or has "Limited Availability" near you.

You'll also see how far away the stores are from you - as long as you've enabled My Location - or manually specified your location.
Google's new in stock nearby feature works on iPhone, webOS and Android smartphones in the US. There's nothing to be installed, just open google.com in your mobile browser, tap on the "more" link and then select "Shopping." Or look for the "Shopping results" section in Universal Search results when you search on Google.com.

Cheers ~ Arne
