Google Adds More Mobile Search Options

In a world where smartphone apps get all the attention, Google keeps improving things for users with basic cell phones.

In today's bustling world of smartphone apps, Google has kept an eye on the guy who may not have hundreds to drop on a phone. Google continuously revamps its mobile browser edition so basic handhelds get the same thorough search experience you'd find on a smartphone.

The latest evolution in mobile search is a filtering option that allows for specified search results. This feature almost seems like it was created specifically for picky tech shoppers. Search for a device, click the "options" drop-down located beneath the search bar, and filter your results. You can scope out forums to get the word-of-mouth nitty gritty, or reviews from trusted sources. Further delve into your results by choosing a timeframe -- any time; past 24 hours; past week; etc.

Google's advancement takes the desktop experience into the palm of your hand, even if you have a basic cell phone. And in a world where some people have decided they'd rather fiddle with a phone than in the bedroom, well, props go to Google for making that possible.
