Google Announces New Search Experience for Honeycomb Tablets

Google has announced a new search experience today which will impact Android 3.1+ tablets and Apple’s iPad. Expected to roll out over the coming days, a new Google.com experience will fall in line with other, simplified layouts. Think in terms of the new gmail inbox (desktop) and Google+ and you’ll get the idea.

Tablet users will find larger page contents (buttons, text, drop-down menus, etc), a cleaner UI, and search boxes which can be used to filter results quickly. Image search gets a bit of extra attention with larger previews, faster loading of thumbnails, and continuous scrolling.

The update has started today and will continue over the next few days for Honeycomb 3.1+ tablets and iPads around the world.
