AT&T Corp and internet giant Yahoo have launched a service that allows Cingular mobile phone users to access their personalized Yahoo account features via their handsets.
The service, known as AT&T Yahoo Go Mobile, will reportedly be made available on the Nokia 6682 mobile phone and be sold online, in AT&T’s 13-state service area and certain Cingular Wireless stores in Texas, Ohio, and Los Angeles.
Yahoo! account holders are said to be able to access anything from their photos, to e-mails and instant messaging all via a Nokia handset. The phone is also said to feature an MP3 music player and a digital voice recorder.
The new service is said to be launched as part of Yahoo’s drive to expand the platforms across which it delivers its services.
