Google Now Going Mobile In India

Google has targetted India earlier. Now it is extending its reach to the lowest common denominator by using the combination of SMS on mobiles. Unlike many western countries, SMSs are quite popular here. SMS over mobiles is the best solution considering its availability and affordability, especially over the mobile web and the personal computers. I think Google has touched the right nerve with the phenomenal growth of mobile usage in India. I expect other local search engines to follow.

    Yes, I think that will happen. Citibank already has PayMate for payments through SMS. Soon we will be using our mobile as a credit card 🙂
