Google just announced “news near you” for smartphones on their Mobile Blog, which brings the location-aware feature of the desktop version to mobile devices.

Now, if you navigate to Google News, you’ll see a new subheading titled “news near you.” 

Google analyses “every word in every story” to understand where a news story might be related to, providing you with accurate results no matter where you are in the world.
