Why is mobile search so hard?

And WHY is nobody trying to make it right? Microsoft launched Bing the other day. The mobile version of this is m.bing.com

There are so many things that are completely wrong with this service, I don’t know where to start. Fortunately Dennis @ wap review has covered it all.

A few things that is worth mentioning again:

  1. transcoded search results?? please… why not mobile search results? And the transcoder is slow as well. And not compliant with standards.
  2. No mobile optimized search results what so ever!

Moreover, its kind of dull in general. Personally I like the Norwegian site kvasir much better. (yes, mobiletech mad it). More interesting, all mobile, relevant searches in a mobile context.
