Google Buzz now available for more Android phones

Back in February when Google released Buzz for mobile, only folks with Android 2.0 or higher and the iPhone could use it.  Today the Google Mobile Blog announced that the Buzz website has been re-written, and now any mobile browser that can read and render XHTML.  Open your browser and surf to and sign in with your Google account.  Not sure if this is enough to make Buzz more popular, but it certainly can't hurt.  To check it out, I was forced to fire up the browser on my venerable Blackberry 8830 WE.  As you can see above, it's not too shabby -- but like everything else, looks much better on the Android browser.  Nice work Google [Google Mobile Blog]

  • Pretty nice for the five people that use it. :P
  • I tested this out a week or two when it first rolled out, but it's completely worthless. I tried Foursquare after Buzz and it's much better.
  • Doesn't work on my Blackberry Bold 9000 :( Edit: Make sure your "Browser Identification" is set to "Blackberry" or "" won't work for you. You can find this setting in the "Options" for the web browser.
  • i guess i'll have to give it a try on my Samsung moment running 2.1
