Google allows mobile users to get personal

Google is allowing mobile users to easily view their personal Google home pages on their mobile devices.

Google is allowing mobile users to easily view their personal Google home pages on their mobile devices.

The idea is to give users the same information they view on their PC, such as previously selected news feeds and financial information, as well as Google web e-mail.

The content available has been optimised by Google to take account of smaller mobile device screens, and the slower bandwidth connections available on mobile networks.

Users with existing Google personalised homepages on their PCs can visit the Google site through the web browser on their mobile phone, select the “personalised home” link, and then sign in with their Google username and password.

Users without a Google homepage will need to set one up through their PC.

The service works with any phone that contains an XHTML-based web browser.

A similar product is being developed by Google rival Yahoo.
