Google Instant may be worth recycling a mobile for
5 November 2010 — 12:09 PM
New technology launched by search engine Google may make using a mobile so easy that some people wish to recycle a used phone and switch to a device capable of running it.
Steve Kanefsky, software engineer at the firm, explains in the latest Google Mobile Blog that Google Instant will help people save a significant amount of time while browsing their handset.
The feature works by producing not only predictions, but also real search terms when the online portal is in use via a mobile.
Mr Kanefsky says the company is "pushing the limits of mobile browsers and wireless networks" by implementing the tool.
He adds those who switch to a relevant device are also likely to benefit from faster speeds when searching online.
There is speculation among industry observers that Google is gearing up to announce the launch of the next incarnation of its flagship mobile, the Google Nexus Two, next week.
Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "If you’ve got a need for speed, this latest Google software will really appeal to you. You could upgrade to a new handset and trade-in your old phone for cash."
