Google, the renowned name in the area of internet search, has introduced new concept to make search easier for mobile users. It has come up with voice-based search and map solutions to strengthen its application portfolio.

Users can get information regarding particular site, opening Google search page that shows top results of the category. The firm aims to capture large market share by providing the facility to low-cost GPRS handsets and offering cheaper data plans.

Google India Head of products, Vinay Goel said, "Mobiles (more than 400 million) outnumber the personal computers (PCs -- slightly over 30 million) concentration in India. A big part of the population accessing Internet going ahead would do so on a mobile handset and so we need to offer enriching experience to these users."

The company has recently introduced a free voice-based mobile Internet search, a master piece of its India engineering team, for BlackBerry users. Mr. Goel said that apart from BlackBerry users the facility will be soon extended to other handsets by December this year.

A leading technology related blog adds, "With this app you get local business suggestions even before you click the search button if My Location is enabled."
