Nokia has announced the Yahoo! Go range of products that will allow users to access Yahoo! Services including messenger, email, search, connections, photos, ringtones and games on Nokia devices.
The mobile application will be free for buyers of Nokia N series phones and Series 60 smart phones and customers will be required to only pay for accessing the web on their handsets. The service offers a desktop-like interface on the mobile phone and the auto-sync feature connects users to the web services regardless of the device.
According to Nokia this announcement is an extension of the 2005 joint venture between the two companies, which made Yahoo! Search and entertainment services such as ring tones and wallpapers available on select Nokia mobile phones.
The services will come preinstalled on Nokia N70 and select Nokia Series 60 smartphones including the Nokia 6680, Nokia 6681 and the Nokia 6630 while existing N70, Nokia 6680, Nokia 6681 and Nokia 6630 owners will be able to download the Yahoo! Go application on their handsets from http://asia.go.yahoo.com.
