Yahoo! Mobile

Thu Feb 19, 2009 - 2:44 PM EST - By Jennifer Chappell

Yahoo! announced recently at MWC the upcoming launch of its new Yahoo! Mobile service, which is a highly-personalized mobile starting point to the Internet.

Yahoo! Mobile will be available on the mobile Web, as an app developed for smartphones powered by Windows Mobile as well as for the Apple's iPhone, smartphones from Nokia, RIM, Samsung, Sony Ericsson and Motorola.

Yahoo! Mobile is available now through a managed beta program, but with general availability expected in Q2 2009.

From the press release:

"We believe the new Yahoo! Mobile will transform the way millions of mobile users around the world will interact with the Internet," said Marco Boerries, executive vice president, Yahoo! Inc. "Yahoo! Mobile will enable users to create their own Internet starting point on their mobile device so they can better discover, connect to and stay informed about the people and things that are important to them."

Yahoo! Mobile has a rich design and interactivity suited for today's mobile device capabilities. It will offer an open environment within which consumers can bring together their favorite content and services from across the Internet. Consumers will be able to:

  • Discover: via results from Yahoo!'s award-winning mobile search, editor-selected content, and new maps tools.
  • Stay Connected: through access to their email and social network accounts from the most popular Web providers, as well as instant messaging, address book and calendar tools.
  • Stay Informed: by bringing together favorite content - websites, sports teams, news sources, RSS feeds, weather, stocks, horoscopes and more - into a single location.
