The old fashioned way
I want to check if i could upload a photo to Commons. All places near me (~2 km) already have pictures, so i want to go a little farther. Load more items, I notice there is some place i could go easily. I took the photograph and upload to Commons. Then add it to Wikipedia.
The problem is knowing where to start the search from. A search radius of say 1000km would be too expensive. It sounds like what you really want is a map view where you can explore a map for a location to find articles nearby (sadly blocked by T35980). Nothing really mobile web can do in mean time.
Note: on mobile web you can provide your own parameters:
fwiw, the CirrusSearch search engine now supports nearby keywords and does pagination. Results are not sorted by distance like Special:Nearby, but various boosting tricks can achieve similar results
