Share this article:

Samsung and Google Inc. reached a deal to give mobile phone users worldwide access to Google products and services directly from their Samsung mobile phones.

Consumers will be able to search for information, find locations and manage their e-mail on the move.

"In the last year and a half, we've signed deals with dozens of industry leaders in the mobile space and released a wide variety of innovative mobile products and services," a Google representative said.

Beginning in early 2007, selected Samsung phones will be provided with Google search, Google Maps for mobile and Gmail.

Samsung already has launched the Ultra Edition 13.8, which is the first mobile handset installed with Google mobile search and Gmail services. The slim 3G Z720 is only 13.8mm in thinness, is HSDPA ready and comes with a 3-megapixel camera, MP3 player and Bluetooth connectivity.

The HSDPA connectivity combined with an Internet browser and Google mobile services will provide users with a rich mobile Internet experience. Future models also will be Google-ready.
