You Can’t Search for Android from an Android Phone

This is a really strange bug. If you use Google to search for [android], [android market] or [android phone] from an Android phone, you won’t get any result. Google only shows ads related to your query and a standard message: “Your search did not match any documents”.


It’s not clear if this is an Android bug or a Google search bug, but it’s certainly not an Easter egg. If you don’t have an Android phone, try this page to use the Android-optimized interface.

Update: it seems that the same bug affects Google’s iPhone interface and there are many other queries that don’t return any result. “When signed into the mobile site, I see some search results, but not for all queries. I’m on a Nexus One. In the classic interface, everything works fine,” says a Google user. “I’m having the same issue on an iPhone 4. No results for super common terms, but images and location searches are unaffected,” confirms another user.
