LBS and local advertising on mobile devices have been hyped and hailed as the "killer app" for mobile. But are they? Most of the current "local search apps" are lackluster and merely transfer the PC user experience to the mobile device. And most companies building local apps haven't thought through their strategies very carefully.

Join of 's Internet2Go program and Jeff Porter and Nahid Giga of mobilepeople, both local search industry veterans, for a wide-ranging discussion of the best local apps today and what the future may look like for local on mobile devices.
