3GSM Vodafone is adding Google search capabilities to its Vodafone live! service. The deal, announced Tuesday, will allow consumers to search both Vodafone's mobile portal and the wider web.

Google has been offering a cut-down version of its search engine to mobile users as a beta service for some time. Users can also get responses to search queries sent via SMS. Last month, Motorola announced a deal to integrate the Google icon onto select devices, allowing consumers to search content on the move at the click of a button. ®
