Google to offer blogging service for mobiles

By Derek Sooman on
Google has launched a new service for Blogger.com that allows users to work on their blogs and create new blogs from their mobile devices! Users of Verizon, AT&T, Cingular, Sprint or T-Mobile will be able to add to or create blogs by sending e-mails or text messages to go@blogger.com. The text is then instantly converted into a new blog, and Google e-mails the user with the URL and claim code.

The initial page will be a generic-looking site and users will be required to enter the claim codes, which will then allow them to change the templates, blog names, and colors, edit previous posts and activate other features. One such feature will apply to users who want to add mobile posts to an existing blog.

The service will be available free of charge, other than the cost accrued from sending messages and emails from a cell phone, PDA, etc.
