Google Mobile App - Available For Windows Mobile

I've previously posted about an 'all-in-one' Google freeware for Windows Mobile called Google2Go.

It was not an official Google production, so Google decided to have their own official free application for Windows Mobile.

Nice. Here's a quote from Google's blog:

Google Mobile App gives you faster searching on your Windows Mobile device, with easy access to your favorite Google applications from the Today screen. There's no need to wait for a browser to open to begin a search, and with search history available to reduce typing, you can get your search results with fewer clicks than before. For an even speedier experience, Pocket PC users can add the Google Mobile App to the start menu (Settings: Menus) or configure a hardware key (Settings: Buttons) to provide easy access from within any application on your phone.

How much faster is it? Well, our stopwatches show that Google Mobile App team members (who are mostly normal people, no superpowers were deployed during the timings) were able to get their search results for identical queries nearly 50% faster from Google Mobile App than from navigating to Google.com in the mobile browser.

Here's a demo video:
