AOL Improves Mobile SearchGreg Sterling has improved its mobile search feature, especially for Windows Mobile devices.

“In the latest version, there are two kinds of search modes:

  1. an enhanced Windows Mobile experience, and
  2. a non-Windows Mobile version, which is also improved albeit with a slightly different presentation.

AOL noticed that a disproportionate number of users were using Windows Mobile devices (and mobile search), so the company created an experience with horizontal tabs that dynamically change depending on the query or context of the search. “

Below is an example of a search for sushi in San Francisco:
