We’ll let you judge whether this is a good or bad thing, but Google is not giving up on its Buzz service.  Today, in addition to introducing a "reshare" feature, the company decided to make Buzz available to people using many more types of smartphones.

You may recall that Buzz only worked with iPhones and newer Android devices when it launched.  Obviously, that left a lot of folks out in the cold.

So on the Google Mobile Blog, Alex Kennberg, a software engineer, wrote this afternoon, "Today we’re a releasing an XHTML version of the Buzz website which can be accessed from many other mobile devices, including those running Android pre-2.0, Blackberry, Nokia S60, and Windows Mobile."  Plus WebOS.

No downloads or hurdle-jumping is necessary to take advantage of the upgrade; a visit to buzz.google.com in the browser is all that’s involved.  Google Buzz for mobile is even available in 37 languages.  Just note that not everyone will have the opportunity to enable one geolocation feature.

Still not a fan of Buzz?  Well, at the rate things are going, Google may offer you a few more reasons to change your mind next week.
