MWC08: Nokia adds Google search to Nokia Search on new handsets

On my Nokia N95 there is a search plug-in on the standby screen that provides a shortcut to search on my device or via the internet. Previously, you had a choice between Windows Live Search or Yahoo Search. This week Nokia announced that Google search will be implemented in the future as well. The four new devices (the N96, N78, 6210 Navigator, and 6220 Classic) will have it integrated and eventually everyone will be able to download an update to the Nokia Search application.

On my Nokia N95 there is a search plug-in on the standby screen that provides a shortcut to search on my device or via the internet.

The four new devices (the N96, N78, 6210 Navigator, and 6220 Classic) will have it integrated and eventually everyone will be able to download an update to the Nokia Search application.

In addition to internet searches, Nokia Search acts like a desktop search tool in that you can search for files on your device or storage card. This is important as these devices ship with more memory and larger expansion cards and people collect more and more data that can be hard to find. Nokia Search also allows you to launch associated applications when you find the data you want and select it so it is a great integrated system.
