Google Improves Image Search For iPhone & Android
The Google Mobile blog announced they have made improvements to Google Image Search’s user interface and features for the iPhone and Android mobile devices. You can now see up to 20 images on a single page and when you click on the details of that image you can view a larger thumbnail, visit the web page containing the image, or view the image in full size. In addition, there is a “filters” link at the top right that let’s you filter by style and also set the safe search filter.

I can also visit the site hosting the image or view the full size image. And as you can see, it shows more details about the image under the image. Here is a screen capture:
