Google Teams Up with Nokia to Offer Google Search on Nokia Mobile Phones

Google   Nokia

Google is partnering with Nokia to offer Google search to Nokia mobile phone users worldwide. If you have a Nokia cell phone, you will be able to use Google to find relevant information.

Nokia N96

The Google search engine will be integrated with the Nokia Search application. This integration will start in certain markets with the Nokia N96, Nokia N78, Nokia 6210 Navigator and Nokia 6220 classic cell phones.

Google search is expected to be extended to more Nokia handset models in the near future. Nokia has plans to make Google search available to Nokia customers in over 100 countries around the world in more than 40 languages.

Nokia Search has been available on many Nokia devices for a while. But this new integration will highlight the Google’s ability to provide local search results.

Nokia 6110 Navigator

Google search has been available on Nokia Internet tablets. Last year the Nokia N95 8GB became the first mobile device to fully support YouTube. Nokia Search is available on more than 40 different Nokia devices in over 40 languages and in more than 100 countries.

Apparently there were several other search engines that were vying to get integrated with Nokia’s mobile phones, and Google ended up being on top this time. Personally, I prefer to use the Yahoo! Mobile app that’s integrated with my cell phone.

There are a lot of others talking about this Nokia Google partnership:

    Honestly…..
    I think this is hardly a breakthrough from Google

    Since 2005, I’ve browsed with google from my GPRS phone, you simply need to install Opera in your Java enabled phones, and go to Google.com… However, ordinary user may find this move seem sophisticated.

    Google seems to play ball with however is willing to play with it. Lets also remember that the iPhone has some customized Google applications on it and was selling the concept as part of its standard sales pitch.

    This is obviously great for Nokia phone users, but what happens to others?!

    Guess we just have to wait and see…I am sure Google will offer this to other manufacturers eventually, seeing the popularity of internet use on phones – I know I search on Google all the time on my phone!
