Default Interesting Google Search results...Mobile view limits search results

Please Login to Remove!

Thought this was interesting, and wondered if others hae experienced other examples of this.

There are two views of Google on the BB (at least that I'm aware of) - the "Mobile" view and the "Classic" view. I have my BB home page set to the Google Mobile view.

I was tracking a UPS package this AM via my BB...Amazon sent me a confirmation email and tracking number. I searched on the tracking number using Google on my BB.

All I got for Google search results was "no results found." Hmmm...strange, the usual "Track UPS Package" link to the UPS site wasn't provided.

I switched to Classic view and ran the same search and the package link showed up as expected and I clicked on it to get current status on the UPS site.

So for some reason the Mobile view of Google isn't completing that search (and others, I assume) in the same way that the Classic view does...wasn't aware the Mobile view was limited compared to the classic in terms of results, I thought it just affected the formatting.
