Google Mobile Improves Search Results for BlackBerry

Rob Stacey, Software Engineer and Steve Cheng, Product Manager of Google dropped word on the Google Mobile Blog a few days back that they have improved the search results pages for BlackBerry users in the US. These new improvements are designed to help you find the information you want more easily:

  • Improved comprehensiveness: Our mobile search now incorporates results from Product Search, Blog Search, News archives search, and more.
  • Blended results: Instead of showing you web, image, local and news results in separate sections, we now combine them to improve relevance. We've also made it easier for you to focus your search on any one of these categories -- notice how the links are now placed at the top of the results page.
  • Longer snippets: Web results include longer snippets so that your answer may be right on the results page.
  • Related searches: At the bottom of the search results page, you'll find a list of related searches to help you refine a query.
Watch the demo video above, then head to Google.com on your Berry to give it a try!

i must say it takes something to impress me. this update by Google is impressive. very clean, very fast, and very relevant in every way imaginable. just go to google.com on your BB and enjoy!

This is pretty awesome! Everything looks great. I share the question regarding google websites for other countries, for example google.com.pa?
