Google Implements Gesture Search For Android Devices

Google has implemented Gesture Search for mobile devices with access to the Android Market. The interface allows users to execute searches on their device by tracing alphabetical gestures on the touchscreen, with intuitive swipes for manipulating and deleting characters. The Google Mobile Blog explains below:
Say you want to call your friend Anne. Just open Gesture Search and draw letter “A”, and Gesture Search returns a list of items that have words starting with “A”. If your handwriting isn't all that neat, that's okay. If the “A” you draw looks a bit like an “H”, as seen in the bottom left corner of the screenshot, “H” results will be brought up as well. If needed, you can also erase a query by crossing it horizontally: left to right erases the entire query, and right to left removes the last letter or space in the query. Now you can either scroll down the list to find Anne or write more letters to refine the search.
