Rafe Blandford from All About Symbian just sent me an overly enthusiastic instant message to go and check out Google’s new dedicated search S60 client. From the screenshot above I was quite ecstatic that I now have the ability to Google straight from my S60 idle screen. After quickly installing it on my Nokia N82 I was let down since there is no idle screen plugin for my particular device (no E90 support either according to Steve Litchfield) and the value of having a dedicated Google application, to me at least, is zero due to the already awesome way the S60 browser handles bookmarks and URL autocompletion.
Granted, for the mass market (Rafe’s opinion, not mine) a “big Google icon makes its easy.” Not for me, but you may want to check it out if you’re bored at work or have a few spare minutes in the bathroom or while standing in a queue.
Just go to mobile.google.com in your phone’s browser.
