Yahoo, T-Mobile Announce Mobile Search Deal



T-Mobile announced it has chosen Yahoo to power its new web2go portal, which will have T-Mobile subscribers who use the Internet use the Yahoo-powered service by default.

T-Mobile subscribers will be able to browse the Internet along with search through the T-Mobile content catalog of ringtones and wallpaper. Yahoo will provide advertising on all search result pages, with both companies sharing advertising revenue. Revenue sharing and other contract details were not announced by either company.

Interesting move by Yahoo. They’re already getting smoked by Google in PC search, and want to try and steal users away in the mobile search…

I wonder what this will mean for T-Mobile G1 phone owners…


Annoyance because they are charged for data access to & have to wait for, google search to load. :iagree:
