Google Finance cleans up for Android

Google has updated its mobile Google Finance page, and says they now have unified the experience across the desktop and mobile for Android (and iPhone) users.  According to Bryan Shih, Product Manager at Google Finance, the most requested feature from users was a "fast and easy to use website."  To find the new site from your Android phone, just search a stock ticker symbol from the the search bar in the browser, or the Google search widget/button; or tap the Finance link at the top of the Google mobile webpage.

App junkies have no fear, you can still download the Finance app from Google, and links are after the break. But, honestly, after seeing the new website I don't think you'll want to. Thanks, G.  [Google Finance Blog]

Entering a ticker gives the same error (no results found for [symbol]). Boo.

So it's quite possible that he's seeing a different site than other people. Load http:\\ to see what your browser is telling the website about your setup. Just checked; the ua from my stock Evo browser is telling sites that I'm running Android 2.2 on Sprint phone with model number APA9292KT and that I prefer US English.
