Google Calendar Goes Mobile

Google has just launched a mobile version of Google Calendar, which is supposed to load for those visiting the Google Calendar site with a mobile phone. Google describes it more in a blog post today. It appears to work on a range of phones, including Windows Mobile.

Via Search Engine Journal, Google Blogoscoped has posted some screenshots of the service in action.

As I said on my blog:

This is part of a larger, holistic push in mobile for Google that includes voice search/directory assistance (Goog411), WAP, applications and text messaging. Gmail is also available for mobile.

Google Calendar is also a local events database (which will become important on the phone), though not as fully developed in that regard as a true events database such as Zvents, Attendio or Eventful.

Recently iCrossing surveyed mobile users and found that search was gaining traction in mobile and that the market share breakdown generally mirrored Internet search.

Expect Google to continue to roll out mobile versions of its Internet products and applications, including, I would imagine at some near-term-future point, iGoogle.

Note that Yahoo Calendar is also available on mobile phones.
