Google believes search on tablets could and should be easier and we’re inclined to agree with them. With that, the company has stated via their mobile blog that they’ll be revamping the search experience on devices running Honeycomb 3.1 and up.
As part of our effort to evolve the Google design and experience, we’ve improved thewww.google.com search experience on tablets. We’ve simplified the layout of search results pages and increased the size of page contents like text, buttons and other touch targets to make it faster and easier to browse and interact with search results in portrait or landscape view.
The search button located below the search box provides quick access to specific types of results like Images, Videos, Places, Shopping and more. Just tap to open the search menu and select an option to see results in one category.
Thanks to the update, images will now render largely with improvements and enhancements that will make your search a much better and enjoyable experience. You should now benefit from faster loading of thumbnails and be able to tap finger friendly links with ease. If you’ve been able to spot the update on your tablet already, we’d love to hear about it. Feel free to drop a comment or two below. We’re glad to see Google pushing Honeycomb in the right direction with these improvements. I’m looking forward to the day when my tablet can fully replace my laptop. We want there to be no limitations! Hit the break for another screen shot.
