Yahoo! Go for Mobile Evolves With New App, Search
Jan 8, 2007, 4:22 PM by (staff)
Today at CES Yahoo launched a new service for mobile phones that it says will create a paradigm shift in user interaction. Called Yahoo! Go for Mobile, the service promises to significantly alter how users personalize and use the web while on the go. A beta version of the application is available for download on more than 70 phone models today and Yahoo says it will have 400 phone models up and running by the end of the year. Yahoo also launched a new mobile search engine called oneSearch. Yahoo execs said that the idea was not to take PC-based search and squash it onto phones, but to create an entirely new way to search the internet. The search engines find the most relevant answers and deliver them in a unique user interface to the phone, where users can find the most helpful and local answers to their queries. Yahoo's oneSearch will initially be part of the Go for Mobile service, but will eventually be scaled to all mobile browsers.
