Google Instant previews going mobile

January 30, 2011: 1:16 AM ET

In November, Google introduced the ability to preview web pages within the search results to the desktop.  Now they've gone mobile.

Some mobile users are now seeing the ability to view those visual search results on their mobile devices.  Below is a screenshot of how it works.

Clicking on the magnifying glass to the right of the results brings up a new browser window which allows you to navigate visually the search results.  I haven't seen anything posted about this yet so it might still be in Google experimental mode.

I found it on iOS but I'm going to go ahead and assume that Google (GOOG) will roll this out to Android as well.
