    Google Buzz takes mobile location services to the next level

    Advertisement



    via Engadget Mobile: Google just announced that it's bringing some serious location-based integration to its services, all centered around the new Buzz social networking tool built into Gmail. Google's going to do location better than the usual latitude / longitude coordinates -- it's able to snap those to actual place names and then take context-aware actions depending on where you are. The new location services is integrated into the main mobile Google.com search page and the new buzz.google.com page for the iPhone and Android, and into maps for Android, S60, and Windows Mobile. Buzz is rolling out starting today, and it should hit everyone within "the next few days."

    I was excited to see the news about it this morning and even more excited to get the Google Maps update to send my first buzz, but that was short lived as I saw the mobile workings for this will only work on OS 2.0+. That bites! Sure, I'll be able to update via computer or laptop, but I was hoping to use more than just maps on my phone to buzz.

    Other than that, this looks really cool and look forward to using the features I can.

    I have had a crazy day today and no chance to see what Buzz is all about, need to try to catch up a bit tonight and over coffee in the morning. Time to hit my rss feeds to read all about it and see if it's something I will use.

    I like it. I was shocked to see so many people on there. It runs flawless on the Droid browser.

    This has a lot of potential. For some reason my buzz link is missing within gmail. Its a web-app and in 2010 we will see loads of these using html 5 compatible browsers. Since that does not include BlackBerry at this point, its possible Google will launch a traditional app for download just for Blackberry or not, which would add pressure for RIM to launch a browser update that supports html 5.

    My Gmail link is missing too, but it works fine on my Droid.

    So far I like Buzz, it's sure different and I'm looking forward to playing around more with it.

    If you check the Buzz info page there's a message at the top, it says they are still rolling it out, I don't have it in my Gmail yet either.

    I like Google Maps fine but I wish it would recalculate when you change directions, or take a wrong turn.

    I'm trying to like it but thus far I'm not sure. "Google Wave" is a flop. I will try to keep an open mind today and see where it goes.

    I admit I didn't play with Wave much, but I just didn't get it. We'll see about Buzz
