A huge revolution in location-based advertising is soon to take place, according to the chief exec of Google.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss resort of Davos, Eric Schmidt said that mobile users could be affected by the soon-to-be truly mobile internet.

"It's the recreation of the Internet, it's the recreation of the PC (personal computer) story and it is before us - and it is very likely it will happen in the next year", he told assembled journalists.

At the moment, reports Reuters, analysts have been cautious about the future of mobile advertising, or advertising that targets where the phone users is, and consultancy Forrester predicting revenues of under $1 billion by 2012.

Google has now launched the iGoogle for iPhone. The earlier version was launched just over a month ago and featured a suite of web applications...


including Search, Gmail, Calendar, Reader, etc " into a user friendly interface. The newer version is supposed to increase speeds and improve usability.

The New Features entail:

An Improved UI: The applications have gotten a face-lift and now look and feel more chic, in addition to their being easier to activate, navigate and be used via a touch-screen.

Customization of default tabs: There's now easier access to your favorite applications as you can customize the applications that show up on the Google.com menu bar. All you have to do is choose your favorite Google applications to bring them to the front menu, so they'll be just a click away whenever they're needed. Further you can even switch between applications with ease, as you only need to sign in once to access either of Gmail, Calendar, Reader, Docs or your Picasa account.

Faster Gmail: Two enhancements which ensure this are: First, the new emails will automatically appear so there's no need to manually refresh your inbox. Secondly, there's an auto-complete feature for contacts which would make composing emails a lot quicker.

Speedier Calendar: There's a new month view, which allows you to glance at an entire month of appointments.

AT&T Releases Business Plan Rates For iPhone

AT&T Releases Business Plan Rates For iPhone

How much do Apple customers use the iPhone for business? Apparently enough for AT&T to come up with a business rate plan for the smart phone. Of course, the plan comes with certain terms and conditions, and it’s twice as costly as the regular consumer plan, but AT&T definitely thinks it is worth it. iPhone has been a phenomenon ever since its launch, in the U.S. more than anywhere else in the world, and the mobile carrier wants to be a part of it more than anything these days.

Google's Android Is an Audacious Move

Google's Android Is an Audacious Move

While some had expected Google to come out with an iPhone-killing G-Phone, the company’s announcement in November of the Android mobile platform is something far more sweeping, and it has ramifications for IT.

To show that Android is no pipe dream, Google trotted out scores of partners in the initiative, including handset vendors, carriers and software providers. What’s most interesting is that the Linux-based platform will be open source (under the Apache license) and free of charge.
So, why is Google doing this? It aspires to get its applications into the mobile sphere, but right now there’s just
too much platform fragmentation. Even Java on one handset is not like Java on another. Lacking a single, strong platform to build on, Google wants to create one. That’s why it isn’t coming out with its own hardware or tying Android to one carrier.

Search Engine Marketing Blog by ineedhits: Google Releases iGoogle for iPhone

Google has released a version of iGoogle, their personalized home page, for the iPhone and other mobile devices.

iGoogle for the iPhone brings in Gmail and Google Search along with RSS subscription feeds, weather maps and stock reports, plus much more.

The new iPhone interface is a step up from Google's previous offering of a mobile specific page at google.com/m which only offered limited customization options.

The iPhone lists all feeds and gadgets in one convenient, single-column format that fits your iPhone's display and you can select individual tabs at the bottom of the page.

You can locate the new version at http://google.com/ig/i. There is still a limited amount of space for gadgets on the page, so you'll need to be selective.

Also, this new Google feature is only available in the USA thus far, so everyone else will have to wait a little bit.

Google Loves The iPhone, But Google's Eric Schmidt Won't "Talk" About It

MacWorld starts today in San Francisco, and there probably won't be any announcement to equal the iPhone, which continues to reverberate across the mobile landscape.

The apps suite, internally called "Grand Prix," will reportedly include new, even more iPhone-optimized GMail, Picasa, Reader, Calendar, etc. (iGoogle for the iPhone launched last week). The CNet article also indicates that Google Gears is coming to the iPhone in the near future.

Report: Mobile Advertising Still Not Common | WebProNews

For people who want the mobile advertising market to grow, here's the best news we can give: it isn't shrinking. Otherwise, a new study indicates that uptake of the technology is uneven and quite slow.

Time and time again, we return to the fact that people don't want to see ads on their cell phones, and this is quite a hurdle. Newspaper, magazine, TV, and online ads all somehow managed to catch on, though, so not all hope (from a supporter's point of view) is lost.

globeandmail.com: Yahoo joins mobile wars

When Jerry Yang co-founded Yahoo Inc. 14 years ago, the company quickly became the biggest and coolest kid on the search engine block.

But over the past decade, other bigger kids have moved in and set up shop down the street - namely Google Inc. and Microsoft Corp. - and since then the former Internet search leader has become greatly overshadowed as its larger and more visible competitors have elbowed their way into the spotlight.

Now as Mr. Yang steers Yahoo deeper into the waters of the mobile Internet, he believes his company has the software and services needed to differentiate itself from its rivals, even though the other big kids from Mountain View and Redmond are already fighting over the new and fertile turf as well.

Ask Mobile Adds "Click To Speak" Directions

Ask Mobile Adds "Click To Speak" Directions:

Ask's Mobile WAP site has added voice to the process of getting directions. The voice-activated service is provided by Dial Directions. On the mobile Ask site, beside the 'Directions' link you'll find a new 'Voice Entry' link. That sends users to the Dial Directions phone number (347-328-4667) or initiates a phone call. Users then verbally provide the requested location and destination information. The service sends a text link that opens a WAP page with a map and turn by turn directions. Dial Directions also has the capacity to provide text-only directions that don't require mobile browser access.
