Posted by at 12:00 pm on November 5, 2009

Best Buy Mobile today announced a retail partnership with Google that will help bring Google Mobile App to consumers and expand their mobile experiences. Best Buy is the first retailer in the U.S. to work with Google to distribute Google Mobile App on smartphones sold in-store.

“We know that consumers want smartphones and, increasingly, they want to use applications,” said Scott Moore, VP of Marketing for Best Buy Mobile. “The challenge is that people still need help understanding what is available to them and how they can bring it to life on their device. This partnership between Best Buy and Google serves that role and will go a long way in bringing applications to more consumers regardless of what device, carrier or platform they use.”

Key features

  • One-click access to Google – search Google without having to navigate to the internet
  • Search by voice – speak your query in plain English
  • My Location – search for local businesses without having to type your current location
  • Google Suggest – search for suggested queries and businesses that appear as you type
  • Links to other Google apps including Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube

Best Buy Mobile associates will install Google Mobile App on all compatible smartphones through the Walk Out Working program which is a free in-store smartphone setup.

More information will provide more information on a new web site, http://www.google.com/bestbuymobile, scheduled to launch on November 9.
