About six months ago, we reported Google Drops iPhone Optimized iGoogle: Users Revolt. In short, Google dropped the iPhone flavored iGoogle and iGoogle mobile users were really upset and they were upset for a long time.

Now, Google announced a new iGoogle currently being tested for iPhone and Android users. Here are screen captures:

Much cleaner look for iPhone/Android users, don't you think? The previous look that people were complaining about looked more like this:

Paul from the Google team said in the long Google Web Search Help thread that has the complaints about this:

I know you all are very passionate about iGoogle on the iPhone. I'm happy to announce that we've got a new version for you to check out! See the article linked below for details.

If you'd like to share feedback about the new version, we're collecting it over in the Google Mobile forum.

Not everyone is currently happy with the changes, but I personally think this is a major improvements from six months ago.
