Yahoo and Motorola Partnership Brings Content and Search To Mobile Users
Motorola Inc. and Yahoo partnered Tuesday and announced that they will be offering Yahoo’s content, mail and search services on Motorola mobile devices. The announcement includes Motorola’s upcoming iRadio product but did not get deeper into any Yahoo Music Search or Yahoo Music Download offerings on Motorola.
The Associated Press reports: Users will be able to access Yahoo’s offerings on Motorola’s Linux-based mobile devices and other high-speed Internet products, including iRadio, a new device that can play Internet radio channels and the user’s personal digital music collection. Motorola plans to launch iRadio later this year.
Yahoo said the deal with Motorola will extend its reach beyond desktop computers into the wireless market. Motorola-made devices carrying Yahoo content will be available to consumers starting next year, the company said Motorola shares fell 9 cents to $20.43 on the New York Stock Exchange, while those of Yahoo added 19 cents to $34.04 on the Nasdaq.
