Zurfer for Mobiles

Have you ever wanted to find photos from your current location on your mobile phone? Well, it appears that the folks over at Yahoo Research have developed an application that will do exactly that…

Zurfer is a prototype application for your mobile phone that allows you to look at Flickr photos that are tailored to your current location. Zurfer uses Yahoo’s ZoneTag technology to determine your location based on the cell phone tower that you are connected to, it then displays photos taken from near that location.

You can also do the more usual tasks on Flicker using Zurfer, such as, seeing contacts new photos, searching Flickr etc…

Sounds like an interesting concept, especially if you are new to an area or are on vacation in a place that you have never been before.
