Google Calendar moves to mobile

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 25-May-2007 10:51

Companies are realising that more mobile phones are in use today than computers. And we see many mobile handsets will full Internet access capabilities being underutilised. How many people you know are aware that it is possible to install a new application on their Symbian or Windows Mobile smartphone? Believe me, some people never knew it was possible.

The natural step is for companies to provide mobile services - and this is what Google is doing with its Google Calendar. If you are using Google Calendar simply point your mobile browser to www.google.com/calendar (or www.google.com/calendar/m if your device doesn't redirect automatically) and it will show something like this now:


Google has already "mobilised" its web-based e-mail service and now it's the time for the calendar to follow.

One thing though: developers need to be very creative because natural device restrictions (screen size, keypad) and software restrictions (limited javascript and plugin support) require lots of different solutions.
