Having waited 4 months for Google+ Pages, I'm a little disappointed by what we got yesterday. It's a very slimmed down version of Facebook Pages that shouldn't have taken more than a couple of weeks to build and launch after the initial launch.
(If you haven't tried it out yet, go to https://plus.google.com/pages/create)

And it leaves a few questions and comments:
- Why does an engaged customer need to click three places to fully connect and recommend the page? Why not just one "+1" button that automatically followed the page and shared it in the feed (if necessary with a confirmation)?
- The current "Add to circles" will confuse the average user (which admittedly hasn't arrived at Google+ yet), since your circles are for people. The button should be named "Follow", and Google should auto-create a circle called "Pages" or similar.
- Why are pages and people mixed together in the search results without further filtering?
- Why can't customers contact the Page or share content by posting on the wall of the Page? It may be a deliberate limitation, but I think businesses will miss out on some customer engagement, if customers are only able to reach the business and other customers/followers in post comments.
- It's a joke, that the website badges aren't ready yet: https://developers.google.com/+/plugins/badge/config - To actually implement the few lines of javascript and finish them up shouldn't have taken much longer than writing in the disappointing text "script coming soon"
- Where's the viral effect? Again with no sharing of either an add to a circle or a "+1", friends of the customer will only know of the page, if the customer actively shares a link to the page.

Google needs to speed things up soon :)
