Hmm, the google mobile search app I use frequently on my BB is location-enabled, so a google search for locksmiths (or italian restaurants, or...) WILL give me a list of those establishments closest to me. Are you sure you got a results list without regard to location? Might depend on whether you have Google Mobile installed and whether Vlingo (or Vlingo Plus) is "aware" of the Google Mobile app - like its obviously from the examples aware of FaceBook, for instance.
