Despite releasing an alternative phone platform to combat the iPhone, Google has not decided to cut ties with the iPhone, and has recently released an update to Google searches for the iPhone.
According to Google’s Official Mobile Blog:
Results are formatted to be neatly displayed on the mobile screen, so there’s no need to scroll side to side. Local search results now include easier-to-press “Get Directions” and click-to-call links. Maps are shown by default in the case of a single listing or accessible by the “Show map” link for multiple listings. For those of you wanting to access the classic desktop search results format, it’s only a click away, with the “Classic” link near the bottom of each page.
Although these additions are a welcome boon for owners of one of the most amazing pieces of technology currently out there, it is Google’s direction that interests the team here at E-Web Marketing more. Although Google is directly competing in the smart phone market, is is willing to make sure that its product is in the best possible condition for people using a different phone. Will this generous stance continue into the future when competition may become more fierce? Only time will tell.
