Google launched their iphone-optimized site today. Wow, holy crap. It looks nice, of course, as do most of the iphone optimized sites. (Facebook is a really good one.) But the amazing thing is how freaking fast it is.

First, they have links for the four services I use on google on my iPhone: search (of course), gmail, calendar and reader. It's like they are reading my mind. (But I know they aren't because I actually use Reader more often mobile than anything else.) Then, you click on a link and it's, like, KABOOM! the reader page instantly appears. INSTANTLY. Same for gmail and calendar. It's like they installed their servers in AT&T's EDGE access points.
