Google Improves Search For Blackberry Devices

Google has brought more of “universal search” to the Blackberry and enhanced its display and presentation of search results in several ways.

According to the Google Mobile Blog, the new and improved Blackberry search results feature:

–Improved comprehensiveness: Our mobile search now incorporates results from Product Search, Blog Search, News archives search, and more. –Blended results: Instead of showing you web, image, local, and news results in separate sections, we now combine them to improve relevance. We’ve also made it easier for you to focus your search on any one of these categories — notice how the links are now placed at the top of the results page. –Longer snippets: Web results include longer snippets so that your answer may be right on the results page. –Related searches: At the bottom of the search results page, you’ll find a list of related searches to help you refine a query.

Here’s a video that illustrates the features in action:

Blackberry is the US smartphone market share leader. Google (according to Nielsen Mobile) is the mobile search leader:

1. Google (61%) 2. Yahoo! (18%) 3. MSN (5%)

Google has also launched a site to learn about all things mobile from Google.
