Search Google images on your cell phone

Google's mobile team opens up image search results for almost any phone. Previously, the pictorial results of a Google search was limited to iPhone and Android.

Last March, Google's mobile team made it possible to search for images on your iPhone and Android phone. On Thursday, they rolled out image search for feature phones; that is, for pretty much any cell phone make and model with a Web browser.

Image search will work roughly the same way it does through a desktop browser. Starting from Google.com in the mobile browser, click "Images" in the top navigation, then fill in your search term. Google will return thumbnail images in the results page; between eight and fourteen, Google wrote in a blog post.

Click on one of these pictorial results to see a larger thumbnail image. Below, there's a link to view the photo in its original Web page and another one that takes you to the full-size image. You're also able to navigate "left" and "right" arrows to view other image results.

As with all Internet-dependent mobile apps, the slower your data or Wi-Fi connection is, the slower these images will be to load.
