Looks like Google is taking mobile devices a little more seriously now that the iPhone has been released. The mobile versions of Google’s services are working better and better. I use the Treo 700w Windows Mobile device as my main cell phone. I’ve set my home page to Google’s mobile product line at http://www.google.com/m/products. I’ve tried every email and rss reader application for my Treo that is available, none of them were that good. Google’s Mobile RSS Reader works great. I imported my OPML and can read all of my favorite feeds from my phone. Google’s mobile version of gMail is awesome too. I don’t even bother using the built in outlook client anymore. A mobile version of YouTube exists for your video viewing pleasure. You can even view your Picasa photo albums on your mobile device. Other options include: personalized mobile start page, maps, blogger, news, calendar, and sms. So if you have an unlimited internet plan, give Google’s new service offerings a try…I’m using them and loving them.
