Google Mobile Search for iPhone 2x Faster, on 3G and EDGE

Whether you stood in line for hours for an iPhone 3G or are still hanging with your first gen iPhone (that's me), you are likely to use your touch-screen gadget to conduct searches. Google has not only created a downloadable application for its search product, but has also increased the speed of its web-based mobile search application. Users should now find search to be twice as fast as it used to be - and that's not just for 3G, but EDGE as well.

There's also easier access to other web-based apps including Calendar, Gmail, and Reader. (Hey Google, any chance of getting downloadable apps for those products? Just sayin')

The web-based apps also all have new icons. Thank goodness.
