Google bestows home screen search upon WinMo, too

Chris Ziegler

S60 ate first, but now it's Windows Mobile's turn -- a bit backward from an American perspective, to be sure, but a very logical one when you look at global market share. Google has now brought its home screen search application to the WinMo platform, noting on its blog that it has discovered that S60 and BlackBerry users with the app installed are able to get to Google search results about 40 percent quicker than those without -- and they search 20 percent more. Makes sense, considering the pain involved with loading the browser, navigating to a favorite (or even worse, typing in by hand) and tapping your feet for a few seconds. The plug-in is available immediately.
