Yahoo! Services to be pre-loaded on Samsung devices
Yahoo! has formed a strategic global partnership with Samsung to distribute its services on Samsung mobile devices including those running Samsung bada and Android platforms.
Under the partnership, Samsung will distribute Yahoo! services including Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Messenger, Yahoo! Front Page, Yahoo! Search, Yahoo! Flickr, Yahoo! News, Yahoo! Finance, Yahoo! Contacts, Yahoo! Calendar, and Yahoo! Weather on its mobile devices globally.
Samsung and Yahoo! have partnered since 2007 to provide consumers with engaging internet experiences on mobile devices. Yahoo! said that Samsung phones may come pre-loaded with one or more of its services beginning from May 2010.
David Ko, senior vice president of audience, mobile and local for Yahoo!, said: “By making our most popular Yahoo! services available on Samsung mobile devices around the world, we’re providing consumers with personally relevant mobile internet experiences that make it easy for them to stay connected to what’s important to them and explore the full potential of their device.
“We’re thrilled to deepen our relationship with Samsung and look forward to continuing to drive the global adoption of mobile Internet services.”
