Google goes small scale for mobile phones

Google has launched a mobile version of its popular search engine.
Google.com/mobile supports WAP, XHTML and iMode handsets and offers web and image searches.

Users are presented with a familiar clean interface. Web searches return the top 10 results, and image searches list the top three. Further results are available on subsequent pages.

Once a user clicks the resulting link, they are taken to a Google version of the linked content that has been reformatted for viewing on the restricted screen of a mobile phone.

Google has indexed 8bn Web pages and 1.1bn images for its mobile offering and is available in more than 90 languages, including Klingon and Elmer Fudd.

Google.com/mobile is available under the different protocols at /wml, /xhtml and /imode.

I'm a fan of wap.google.com myself LaZyFLiP. It's nice that it makes many websites that are not designed for mobile devices some what useable.

Yahoo also has a nice mobile portal at Yahoo Wap.
