Both Yahoo! and Google today announced they will make an even stronger push into mobile search and applications. Google last night announced they will partner with Motorola to enable "one button search" on select Motorola phones. Google also said they expect more people to search for more content on mobile phones in the future, eventually surpassing PC search. Yahoo! today announced software that extends their mobile presence on S60 phones to more of the search giant's services including photos and local content. In addition Yahoo! announced it will partner with Motorola to preload IM, email and other Yahoo! services on Motorola phones.
Yahoo Improves Search In Mobile Browsers
Yahoo today said it has refreshed how it displays mobile search results in a way that will help people find what they're looking for quicker. Yahoo explains that rather than offer lists of links, the new search presents results — including images, videos, news, and other details — prominently in a way that's more useful.
Yahoo Rejiggers Browser-Based Search for iPhone
Yahoo says it has tweaked how it presents results to people who search from the iPhone's browser. iPhone owners who have Yahoo set as their default search engine will now see cleaner search results that display more data and make it easier to drill down into specifics.
Yahoo Adds Gmail Support to Yahoo Mail
Yahoo Mail today gained the ability to manage Gmail and Google Apps accounts. Yahoo relaunched the app in October and made it compatible with AOL, Hotmail, and Outlook.
Yahoo Mail Now Supports Multiple Accounts
Yahoo today rolled out a new version of its Mail application for the iPhone and added the ability to use multiple email accounts. The app now supports Yahoo, Outlook, and AOL email services and can be used to manage a handful of accounts from a single inbox.
Yahoo and Microsoft Change Up Search Partnership
Yahoo and Microsoft today have altered the terms of their search partnership moving forward. According to Yahoo, the agreement gives it more flexibility when it comes to its search business on desktop and mobile platforms, though Yahoo will still place Bing ads in its desktop search traffic.
good to hear..
I found it lacking only a few features and I don't know they are even possible to add without a lot of help from the Cell makers.
1. Tie it into the location/GPS system.
2. Allow you directions. When you exit out they are lost.
3. Select locations from your address book.
If I am in a town where an old friend happens to live it would be great for me to not have to type in his address for the search and or directions.
