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.
