    So the question is: what's the purpose? And will the advertiser answer? I'm assuming only big ones will have the phone icon.....

    In addition, we retain your information (including your phone number, date, time, and call length) only temporarily. It will be deleted from our servers after a period reasonably necessary to operate, audit, and evaluate the service.
    And capture/aggregate metrics on how popular their advertisers are???

    I get a feeling that they are testing some kind of Pay Per Call model similar to MIVA. This makes sense and opens an entire new market, and can tie in nicely with Google's ambitions for classifieds.
