When even Google is impressed by the amount of traffic driven to its search page by a particular device, that's saying something. The head of the company's mobile group said in a Mobile World Congress interview that it "made [its] engineers check the logs again" when data indicated that the iPhone
was responsible for 50 frickin' times
more traffic than any other mobile device, going on to hypothesize that if other manufacturers follow the same route, mobile search will overtake desktop search within a few years. With products like S60 touch
and Google's own Android
in the wings, we'd say the writing's on the wall.
