Google has launched a new mobile version of Google Finance for Android and iPhone. This offers nearly all the same features and functionality as the desktop version.

"Here on the Google Finance team, we’re always looking for new ways to help you access the finance data, charts, and reports that you need in the blink of an eye," says product manager Brian Shih. "But all the data in the world won’t help if you can’t access it when you need it most. Since many of us are on the run throughout the day and don’t always have our computers in front of us, it came as no surprise that one of users’ most frequently requested features was a fast, easy-to-use mobile website for Google Finance."

"Now no matter where you are, you can keep up with your portfolio, the latest market news, and the sectors you care about, with real time quotes and data — all at a glance," says Shih.

Google Finance can be accessed from mobile when you do a Google search for a stock ticker or company name, or tap the "finance" tab on the Google Mobile homepage.

There is also an app for Android users available in the Android Market.
