Count down to 2009 with Google Mobile Tips

Tuesday, December 2, 2008 | 5:08 PM

Whether you're shopping or traveling, entertaining or keeping in touch, let Google mobile make your life a little easier this holiday season with Google Mobile Tips.

From now through January 1, 2009, we'll post one new tip each day on our Google Mobile Tips microsite. You can also view the tips on your phone by simply entering your phone number on the microsite and clicking "Send". You'll receive an SMS text message with a link that leads to a tip on a mobile web page.

Today's tip is on voice search. Many of you may know that we recently launched Google Mobile App for the iPhone with voice search. However, did you know that you can tap the green highlighted text in the search bar to see alternative predictions of what you've spoken? If the voice recognition for a query is close but not perfect, try tapping this text to see if your desired query is in the list. If it is, then just tap the list item to see your search results. Voice search can come in handy when you're looking for that perfect gift -- whatever that may be.

Make life even easier by taking a look at this countdown to 2009 for tips about other Google products like Product Search, Checkout, Maps, and more. There's even a gadget that you can add to your iGoogle page -- read more on the Official Google Blog.

The mobile version of the "Countdown" doesn't seem to be updating. It's missing the last two tips. Today is December 8th but on mobile site the last tip is from the 6th!

How soon before the Voice Search be available for the BluackBerry Storm?

There are other apps that I would like to see for the Storm, but I think that the Voice Search would address the widest audience.

Leep up the great work. You guys are doing an amazing job.

Is there an app in development for the blackberry storm? The default bb app does not address the many new featuers...
