Google has announced the availability of Google Mobile App for Windows Mobile. Google Mobile App allows for faster searching and easy access to Google applications on Windows Mobile devices.

Users can search or access applications from their Today screen. Search suggestion completes search queries as you type, based on search history. Users can even set Google Mobile App to a configured hardware key for one-touch access to the application. According to the company, searching is now 50 percent faster than loading a web browser and searching from Google's home page. Windows Mobile users can download the Google Mobile App by connecting to http://m.google.com/search on their mobile device.

Google has also updated Google Maps for BlackBerry with support for the Verizon BlackBerry Storm, which was not previously available. Storm users can download the new version by navigating to m.google.com/maps on their phone.
