Scribe To Be Used In Google Instant For Mobiles?

A few days ago, a little known Google feature surfaced again, which will almost certainly end up on Google Instant for mobile; Scribe as it is known bears an uncanny resemblance with the new functionality that was unveiled yesterday by Google during an event held in San Francisco.

Scribe provides autocomplete suggestions to users as they type in their characters that are based on search engine results (like Instant) and will eventually be rolled out in a number of languages.

Currently, it is http://scribe.googlelabs.com/ still in labs, which means that it doesn't take into account search history or user's personalisation yet, something, which like for Instant, may change in the future.

The suggestions are ranked by "Google Scribe Score" which is based on popularity, relevance and other factors.

What's more interesting is that the suggestions can be chosen by keying in a number from 0 to 9, something which will prove invaluable on a mobile phone. Not only does this significantly reduce the number of entries needed to write a sentence or a message, it is also of great importance for Google as it provides it with feedback on what's important.
