Google offers personal home page for mobile phones

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 11:27 pm

Web search leader Google Inc. on Thursday said it was now offering U.S. mobile phone users a personalized version of the Google home page tailored to work on most recently introduced mobile phones.

The Google Personalized Home page for mobile phones will allow consumers to conduct Web searches and check Gmail e-mail, news headlines, local weather reports or a list of stock prices — all from one central page on their phones.

Google is racing with Internet rivals such as Yahoo, Microsoft, America Online and InfoSpace to extend the information services they already offer on computers to the browsers of mobile phones.

The Mountain View, California,-based company plans to offer the personalized Google home page for mobile phone users in international markets in the coming weeks and months, said Deep Nishar, Google’s product manager for wireless services.
