Google Instant mobile arrives on iPhone, iPod Touch and Android 2.2

Google Instant has arrived on iOS; you’ll notice an Instant Beta (On/Off) option towards the bottom of the screen – it’s currently opt-out.

While it has made little or no difference to my life on the desktop, on the mobile not having to wait for a page refresh should actually make things that little bit easier. That said, if you user the Safari search field (as most iPhone users do) this isn’t going to make a bit of difference until Apple decides Safari integration would benefit the user.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Thanks to a shoddy O2 connection here in the UK, I’m unable to even access Google’s homepage to grab a screenshot, thankfully our Canada Editor Tris Hussey is a little more fortunate.

Google Instant launched in September reportedly saving the users 2-5 seconds per search.

UPDATE: Google just emailed us (and then posted a blog post with the video below) to say that Google Instant also now works with Android 2.2 as well in the same way.
