FYI. The "mobile" service name was recently made live:

These URLs "work" although the 2nd is apparently malformed XML and neither of them get you anywhere when you login:
https://www.google.com/accounts/Login?service=mobile
https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin?service=mobile

Trying to create an account generates an "Invalid request":
https://www.google.com/accounts/NewAccount?service=mobile

And trying to edit the service details gives the usual "User has not signed up for the service":
https://www.google.com/accounts/EditUserServiceData?service=mobile

BTW, this was in the sandbox [*] back in July last year, when it pointed to here in the accounts page: http://m.google.com/m

I wonder what they're planning on using it for now though. The ServiceLogin page above says:

<< Need an account?
Go to google.com/ig on your computer. >>

Maybe it's just to bring all the mobile services they currently offer together – or just a way of offering a "mobile-friendly" sign-in page.

Hmm, wasn't there speculation on a "Google Phone" recently (some Google-developed/ co-developed mobile OS)?

I also realised this morning that when viewing Google.com on my mobile, I get the option to switch between Mobile and Classic like in the page above:

<< View Google in:
Mobile | Classic >>

(I don't remember seeing that before but I rarely use Google from my mobile...)

For "Google Phone" keyword. Free season comes, I have time to do one mobile phone at Google mark. Or I plan to do a PC. Not decided.
I did five or six Gfans phototype(watch, clothing ect) per year. Just for enjoy. Not for profits.
This year, only plan to do a one.
