Google Mobile Search Adds Universal Flavor To Arabic & Hebrew Searchers

The Google Mobile blog announced that Arabic and Hebrew mobile searchers are now able to see universal results directly on their mobile devices. Although not related, this comes soon after Google Translated recently added 9 new languages.

I know a bit of Hebrew, so I tried to test out the search results on Google Israel on my iPhone. Unfortunately, I did not see the same mobile friendly results, with universal search, on my iPhone. Maybe it was related to me searching on my iPhone or searching in the states, I don’t know.

What it should look like is:

hebrew google mobile

What I see on my iPhone:

Google Hebrew on iPhone

Heck, it doesn’t even look iPhone friendly. To give Google some credit, the iPhone is not fully supported yet in Israel, so maybe this is not functional on the iPhone yet. Maybe it is only working on supported mobile devices?
