Vodafone, Google team on mobile search

Google and Vodafone have teamed up to make mobile search technology accessible to cellular subscribers.

Mobile operator Vodafone Group has teamed up with Google to offer a mobile search service to its Vodafone live! subscribers, the company said Tuesday.

Under terms of the agreement, Vodafone will offer Google's search technology to allow subscribers to search for information and services on Vodafone live! and on the Internet, the company said. Examples of the kind of information that will be available include news, weather and details of restaurants, it said.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The companies did not say when Google's search engine would be added to the Vodafone live! service.

Google's deal with Vodafone is not the company's first push into the mobile search market. In January, Google announced a deal with handset vendor Motorola Co. to put a button with a Google icon on some handset models that will enable users to connect wirelessly to Google's search engine. Those handsets are expected to be available during the first quarter of 2006.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
