Google refines search results on iPhone

iPhone-optimized search results now appear when using Safari's built-in search box. The new results also appear on the T-Mobile G1, which uses Google's Android operating system.

After revamping the iPhone's presentation of Google search results last month, the Internet giant has spread the change more broadly on the Apple device.

Previously, the new Google search results were available only when people typed Google.com into the phone's browser, then performed the search. Now the results also appear when using Safari's built-in search box, which, given that it's one fewer slow-loading page away from results, is how I use the service.

Google announced the change on its Google Mobile blog. The new results also appear on the T-Mobile G1, which uses Google's Android operating system. In addition to being better-suited to the devices' screen size, the mobile-formatted pages load more quickly, Google said.

iPhone customers can change their default search provider to Yahoo, if desired.
