Access Google's mobile search page on iPod touch/iPhone iOS devices
On an iPod touch or iPhone, here's how to reach a 'better' Google. First bring up Safari and tap the address bar. Leave the Google search box blank and tap search. This automatically brings you to the mobile Google home page, which is quite handy as the mobile version fits the screen much better.

Also for the Canadian user out there (like myself), your Region Format settings under International (all under the Settings button on your Home screen) are most likely set to Canada. This means that when you use the blank Google search tip, it will bring you the .ca version of the mobile Google page. This page is, unfortunately, nowhere near as nice as the US version.

To fix this, change the Region Format to United States. The actual Region Format stays the same, but when you use the blank Google search hint, it will bring you to the US version of mobile Google, which is much nicer then the .ca version.

Or you can just save http://www.google.com/m to your bookmarks, which will always show the mobile page.
