Google recently redesigned its mobile webpage, rolling out the new version which, at that moment, featured Places and more. It appears that there's an even newer version of the webpage you access from your Android smartphone or iPhone, rethought, revamped, more accessible.
If you go to Google using your Android or Apple smartphone -- depending on your region, but the English version already has it -- you will see a new design with tabs at the top for Web, Images, Places, Notes and more. It will still request your location in order to bring you personalized content but there are also some new usability and experience features added. You can now find stuff you're looking for more easily and have access to apps like GMail, Buzz, Books, Picasa, YouTube, Reader and more straight from the More tab. Check it out and let us know if it's there for your region.
