Google: a 4 Parts Logo

Just a little curiosity: today I opened www.google.it in Opera browser mobile version, on my Nokia 6680, and I noticed that its logo was divided in 4 different parts, and with “Italia” rendered as text:

Google Logo part 1 Google Logo part 2 Google Logo part 3 Google Logo part 4

The old version was a single image, with the text “Italia” embedded:

This change seems to be also in other international Google website.

The old version is visible, for example, in one of the cached pages by Archive.org.
Bandwidth optimization?
