Would you use Google Mobile?

Google Mobile makes it easy to access online information — billions of pages images — on your cell phone or mobile device.

In Germany and Austria T-Mobile has already given up the battle against Google, where the engine has become the default search provider on T-Mobile's network.
Google's mobile search technology either works by sending a text message to the search engine with a query, or by visiting a specially formatted version of the engine on the Google website.

Vodaphone's Ferguson however argued that Google Mobile for now is mainly a marketing offensive. "Google is very aggressive, but they don't have a product."

Don't forget about 4INFO!

4INFO (shortcode 44636) has a similar text message offering, but provides several additional services that Google does not: sports scores ("packers" "nfl"), fantasy stats ("brett favre" "priest holmes"), flight times ("swa san jose san diego") and a beta version of mobile download search. All these services can be accessed via SMS (44636), WAP at , or email to

Why 4INFO instead of Google?
“When asked recently for the address of a trendy downtown Manhattan club called Butter, both 4Info and Yahoo! located it on the first try. But Google sent back results better suited to baking.”
