Back in February, Google launched its Google Buzz service for mobile, a combination of Twitter and Foursquare, to start conversations when you are out and about. According to Google, one of the most popular ways to access Google Buzz for mobile is through the web application (by going to buzz.google.com in your phone's browser). However, when Buzz launched, it was only available for devices running Android 2.0 or greater and iPhone. Not any more! Today Google released an XHTML version of the Buzz website which can be accessed from many other mobile devices, including those running Android pre-2.0, Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, Nokia S60 and webOS.

While Google has launched Buzz-enabled Google Maps Mobile for many platforms, it has yet not launched device specific Buzz applications, as available for Android. However, Buzz can now used on most mobile devices by entering buzz.google.com in your browser. Then when you log in using your Google credentials, you will be able to view the stream of buzz posts, post publicly or privately, comment or like a post, and more. On the BlackBerry platform, you can also enable location through your browser settings. This will allow you to get to the nearby view, where you'll find geo-tagged posts near you. In addition, you can tag your post with your location. Please note that location features might not work on some devices.

Android pre-2.0 devices can now run the same web app as newer versions of Android. You can also switch to the XHTML version if needed, and we will remember your preference.

Furthermore, Google worked hard to make Google Buzz for mobile accessible in more locations and it's now available in 37 languages through buzz.google.com.
