AT&T Cell Phones to Feature Yahoo Search


AT&T Wireless has begun to feature Yahoo Search on the Internet menu of mobile handsets for its 70 million U.S. customers, the companies said on Monday. Reuters reports that AT&T plans to offer, through its mobile Internet portal, a collection of Yahoo’s oneSearch mobile Web services including links to news, financial information, weather, Flickr photos as well as Web search via the cell phone deck.

The report said that the new deal is part of a revised partnership announced in January between the two companies, where Yahoo will provide search and advertising services to AT&T’s mobile phone, broadband, and TV customers. Meanwhile, AT&T’s will deliver local search information to customers in return.
