Google Calendar Some Details

Paul Stone found has some screenshots which show that its not a matter of if, but when Google Calendar launches. I have been trying to nail down the specifics of the calendar for last 15 days, and have found some sketchy details.

  1. It has a user interface quite similar to that of GMail and Google Reader. It is said to be a blue page divided into a grid.
  2. You will be able to double click on a date and add an event. You can also make the appointment public.
  3. There will be some sort of ability to sync with Outlook and possibly with iCal. Can sink with outlook/iCal and many more.
  4. It will most likely be able to send SMS alerts.

Seems like it is an AJAX twist on a traditional calendar. I am sure there are some nifty tricks, but hard to pin down details because Google has strict non disclosure policies for its beta testers. (That doesn’t mean I am going to stop trying.)
