Mobile search makes even more sense than desktop search. And your phone is always with you. But this is not the end of Google. There is Android, remember?

As mobile rises, desktop search declines for the first time
We might not even search for a restaurant to eat at until we're out the door; a number of apps can give us recommendations on the go. And nontraditional search engines are on the rise: we might search for clothes on instead of Google, or airfares on Hipmunk, or a friend's e-mail address on Facebook. ..... By the end of the year, almost a third of Internet search traffic will come from smartphones and tablets
Why The Google Era May Be Over
Something crucial happened last month that no one seems to be paying attention to. ..... People searched less. ...... That's never happened before.
