Google Moves into Business Software

Google made moves Sunday to enter the business software market by introducing a suite of applications that include email, communications and calendaring capabilities that are already offered separately by the search provider.

The Web based applications will be offered for free, and seem to be a competitor to Microsoft's Office Live product.

Google Apps for Your Domain includes the e-mail service Gmail, a Web-based version of its Google Talk software, Google Calendar, and Google Page Creator, a Web site design application. While in beta the service would be free, although Google may charge those who sign up for the product after the beta ends. BetaNews | Google Moves into Business Software
