What I want to know is -> will this make people use it? Does it make the results more interesting? People more excited about using AV to find stuff?
From the few searches I did, this isn't making me more excited about using it to find stuff. Inktomi, imho, is doing way better at indexing and presenting good results.
And that 1 billion includes 500 million in the US alone, by year's end. Also, the G3 technology is now rolling out. Several makers are using the embedded Opera browser - which gives a very nice user experience. Desktop Opera 7 has a small screen setting that lets us see our sites as they will appear on a mobile device.
It looks like mobile surfing (with high bandwidth!) will be having a big impact in our very near web future.
The #1 killer-app for phones in Japan, besides voice, is e-mail.
#2 is probably the transmission of photos taken with the new camera enabled phones (but that could arguably fall under e-mail)
In the meantime learning how to design leaner/code leaner, will be rewarded im sure. -not asumming that people will be vewing your site on a standard 640/480 to 1200etc screen size.
This is an exceptional option for users of msn - not only is it small and fast - but it also gives access to the "previews" which offers thumbnails of websites that are listed for a keyword search query.

For some searches you will encounter the first FOUR results being sponsor links from Overture....
The next SIX Overture results - numbers 5 through 10 - will be "google-like" adwords on the right side of the search window.
After the Overture sponsored links - the next three links are from "Shortcuts"...
Incredible as it may seem - you can NOW have a "numeber ONE" listing for a popular search query - but appear seventh down the list!
The latest edition of the Ineedhits newsletter ( Newsletter Issue 434, 21st February 2003 )
is actually using part of the information in THIS Topic as their selling agenda. They have publicized the same urls that have been posted here - as one more reason to use their services...
