Yahoo services to be preloaded on HTC devices
High Tech Computer Corp., provider of Microsoft Windows Mobile-based smart devices, and Yahoo announced a strategic global partnership to preload and distribute Yahoo's mobile services on millions of HTC devices.
Services such as Yahoo Go for Mobile 2.0 and Yahoo Mail will come preloaded on many of HTC's smart devices. Yahoo oneSearch will also be included.
The recently launched Yahoo Go 2.0 service provides users with unique product design, ability to personalize with content from across the Internet and a reinvention of search for the mobile phone through Yahoo oneSearch.
The innovative carousel design of the service makes it fast and easy for consumers to navigate the selection of Yahoo Go widgets, personal channels for e-mail, local information and maps, news, sports, finance, entertainment, weather, photo sharing and search.
As a result, users of an array of HTC's smart devices will be able to easily use the services to stay informed, entertained and in touch with their Internet community.
Through this new partnership, the companies will focus on extending their leadership in the mobile industry. HTC mobile devices with Yahoo services will be available to consumers through both mobile operators and direct distribution channels.
Founded in 1997, HTC designs, manufactures and markets innovative, feature-rich Smartphone and PDA phone devices.
