Google News enhanced for mobiles

It's all go over at the Googleplex.

Fresh from unveiling a whole host of new search engine functions, the web giant has now announced big improvements for Google News on your mobile.

This new version is designed along last year's revamp which brought Google News Mobile more in-line with the desktop version, with added features and personalisation options.

This redesign concentrates on the UI with expanded story space to make tapping on articles easier and more accurate.

Now when you tap on an article it opens it up, and clicking on a section heading opens up that topic section on your screen.

"The default view of stories is now collapsed, to reduce scrolling time. You can ‘expand’ a story by tapping ‘More sources’, which brings you to related stories from other sources", explains the Google blog.

The new changes are live now and you'll reap the benefits if you're packing an iPhone, an Android device or a Palm Pre in your pocket.

Improved versions for Blackberry, Windows Mobile, and S60 blowers are coming "in the near future".
