Google Personalised Page Goes Mobile
Google is expanding its mobile offerings with the announcement of Google Personalized Home for mobile devices, a new service that enables users' access to their personalized Google homepage on their mobile phones and PDAs.

With Personalized Home, users on-the-go can view the information they access most frequently from one screen on their mobile device. For example, business travelers can keep up with their personal stock quotes while they're on the road, and news junkies can stay on top of their favorite headlines when they're away from their desktops and TVs all without having to search multiple web pages from a mobile device.

Google Personalized Home provides at-a-glance access to information such as Gmail, customized news headlines, local weather, stock updates, hand-picked RSS feeds and more. Information is optimized for the smaller screens and slower bandwidth of most mobile devices and is presented in a format that reduces the need to click multiple links.

Users who have already set up a personalized Google homepage on their PC can simply visit google.com through the web browser of their mobile device, select the "Personalized Home" link, and then sign in with their Google account username and password. The next time they visit google.com on their phone, they will automatically see the same customized content modules that are featured on the web version of their Google personalized homepage.

Users who do not yet have a personalized Google homepage on their PC should first google.com/ig from their desktop computer and select the content to be added to their homepage.

Google Personalized Home is available for free to mobile users and works with any phone that contains an XHTML-capable web browser. Users should check with their carriers on their data service plan to determine if there are additional charges for web access.
