Google has launched Mini, its integrated hardware/software search appliance, in the United Kingdom. The device delivers search across a company’s intranet or public website.

Now available in the United Kingdom and Europe, the Google Mini’s price range begins at 1,200 pounds (US$2,239), and is designed to search for information. What makes Google Mini different is that its search capacity is limited from up to 50,000 to 300,000 documents (depending on the version), making it ideal for small and medium businesses like law firms, educational and government institutions, and health-care organizations.

“With more webpages, Web logs, corporate information and other content being created, businesses of every size are having difficulty helping their customers and employees quickly find the information they need,” said Roberto Solimene, European Enterprise Director for Google. “Using the new Google Mini, more U.K. and European small and medium-sized businesses can now have Google-quality search on their intranet or public website.”

The Google Mini comes with one year of support, software updates and hardware replacement coverage.
