Search Google faster on your iPhone or Android. David Needle reports.


Google has released a beta of Google Instant for mobile devices. Instant, the search enhancement Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) introduced in September, is designed to give user's quicker access to results by providing results as soon as just the first few characters or words are typed into the search box. For example, Instant may start showing weather reports (a common query) after the user has typed in the letters W-E.

"With Google Instant on mobile, we're pushing the limits of mobile browsers and wireless networks. You will probably notice a big improvement in speed when you search thanks to a new AJAX and HTML5 implementation for mobile that dynamically updates the page with new results and eliminates the need to load a new page for each query," said Google software engineer Steve Kanefsky in blog post .
