Google Mobile App For BlackBerry Now Available In India

In March, Google introduced Google Mobile App for BlackBerry to make search easier and faster. Today Google announced the availability of Google Mobile App in India with My Location and voice search. With this app you get local business suggestions even before you click the search button if My Location is enabled.

Suppose you are craving for some caffeine. You can just type "coffee" and get the closest cafe near you. With a single click on the suggestion you can call them or look it up on Google Maps for mobile.

You can always get the latest version of Google Mobile App at http://m.google.co.in/

Do you miss the ICC World Twenty20 matches? Do you find typing on the tiny mobile keyboard cumbersome? Just speak "cricket scores" into your Blackberry to get the latest updates. Google Mobile App is truly Indian now, all you need to do is select Indian English from the options menu.

Ever confused about the right way to spell Indian names? Say, you were interested in finding out more about our Lok Sabha speaker, Meira Kumar but you are not sure how her name is spelled. Just speak her name and it shows you the correct web results for "Meira Kumar". However, if you said "Meera bai", it would give you the alternative spelling even though "Meira" and "Meera" have identical pronunciations.

To install the the app, visit m.google.co.in on your BlackBerry browser. The app is free to download and use, although your mobile provider's regular data charges will apply.
