Yahoo today announced new applications and new web-based services for both Android and the iPhone. Starting with Android, Yahoo introduced a new Mail application, a new Messenger application, and a new Yahoo search widget. The Yahoo Mail application offers push notifications of new email, integration with Yahoo Mail contacts and the device's contacts, email search, photo attachment support, attachment view and download support, and quick switching to Messenger. The Messneger app lets users see their friends' presence, send IMs as SMS messages, receive push notifications, send photos to friends from the camera or gallery app, and use all the Yahoo emoticons. Both applications are free downloads available from the Android Market starting today. As for the iPhone, Yahoo is using HTML5 to create a new web-based email application. The application lets iPhone user see HTML emails, as well as compose, reply, and search messages even when offline. It also previews photos in the email message and lets users manage their folders. Yahoo says the new HTML5 email web-app for the iPhone works similar to the way its desktop web client does. Last, Yahoo has improved the way Yahoo News works for iPhone users.

Minimum requirements?

I'm not seeing it in the market - but unfortunately I'm running 1.5 on the CLIQ. 🙄 Can anyone confirm if this is for 1.6 or higher?
I can see it. N1 2.2

Go to appbrain.com, search for the apps there (it will show up). Click More options and scan the qr code.
Finally being able to use a browser without a firewall... the press release clearly states that the programs are for Android 2.0 or higher, eliminating roughly half of all Android phones currently on the market.
