Google has had a site specifically geared towards the small screens on handhelds and smartphones for quite some time. However, until now, the sites that came up as a result of a search weren’t necessarily ones that were very easy to display on a small screen.
To deal with this problem, Goggle has added a new option to its mobile site. This allows users to specify that the sites that result from their searches must be mobile device-friendly.
This new feature is still in beta, but it appears to be quite functional. Still, not surprisingly, it gives far fewer sites as search results than the full version of Google, and many of these are for non-English web sites.
The Google mobile site can be found at http://www.google.com/xhtml. In order to get only mobile device-friendly search results, the “Mobile Web” option must be selected.
